Today is national signing day in college football

For those not in the know, today is the first day that future students of colleges can sign commitment letters to attend those schools with the intent of playing football. That doesn’t sound like a big deal at first, but it turns out it is a VERY big deal. Coaches have been traveling all over the country for the last 3 months courting the best high school football players. Up until now, none of them have been able to sign on the dotted line so other coaches come in a try to sway those who intend to go to one school or another. Today is the day that the coaches get the majority of their recruits to sign on the dotted line.

Click here for a list of the Cal recruits who have signed as of today.

In general, it seems like a pretty good lot, ranked by most as the 4th best in the Pac-10 (USC, Arizona, UCLA in that order being better). However, the QB, Kevin Riley is supposed to be incredible and there are THREE highly touted running backs: R.J. Garrett, James Montgomery and Tracy Slocum. This is an indication that Cal is getting a reputation with running backs as being one of the premiere running schools on the west coast, and why wouldn’t it with all the talent that has gone through here in the last few years. Also of note are two junior college transfers who will be immediate help on the depleated offensive line.

Things continue to look up in Berkeley…
