National Signing Day Open Thread

Editor's note: Thank you for participating in today's thread. I've now closed the comments and am asking you guys to move over to our press conference thread. Fight On! -Joey

So, today is the day!

I pretty much see it this way...If we hold a majority of this class together then I will be happy. If we add a few surprises then all the better! You really can't ask for much more than that...not with this staff coming on board three weeks ago. That would be a great accomplishment!

We will be providing updates throughout the day.


11:15am - Di Poalo is IN!

10:45am - Jesse Scroggins, Robert Woods, Anthony Brown and Dion Bailey's LOI's are IN!

10:20am - Safety Sean Parker is headed to UW. Nice pick up for Sark.

9:00am - Glen Staley is in! Per Lane Kiffin Twitter.

8:35am - Looks like Markeith Ambles to USC! This could USC's best WR class ever. Here is Ambles' Video of his announcement.

7:50am - Overnight Hayes Pullard announced for USC. This is a big deal as he was a strong ucla lean for a we steal one from them. They may get one from us. It is early yet. Also last night, USC stole one from UF when Nickell Robey committed to USC. Robey will be an awesome cover cornerback.

Announcement times after the jump!

Here are the announcement times as of last night... (all times PST)
