The network got a whole lot stronger on Sunday evening with the signing of, now you the fans get to experience the power of a network and having people spaced out across the nation as it allows you to get the news as quick as most of us. publisher Alan Zepeda will be traveling to Klein High School today to cover the college announcement of J.B. Shugarts. Zepeda plans on blogging live from the event. He will also be recording the event on video and will have pictures.

Shugarts, one of the top rated offensive linemen in the nation will be choosing from the Ohio State Buckeyes, Oklahoma Sooners, Texas A&M Aggies, LSU Tigers and the Florida Gators.
