Yesterday was a big day for the Cougs when it came to recruiting, and we could be getting more news about new players very soon.

Today is the first day that transfer players from junior colleges can sign with universities if they are enrolling in classes for the spring semester. We've known most of these names for some time, but  Britton Ransford of WazzuWatch.com has told CougCenter 3 names that are expected to be signing very soon, if not today, and 2 more that will be signing within the next few months.

According to Ransford, former UCLA 4 star linebacker, who spent this fall at a community college in California, Aaron Porter and Riverside Community College 2 star defensive end Jeremiah Mitchell are going to sign early, either today or by the end of the month. Ransford says that Mitchel's Riverside CC teammates, 3 star linebacker Jonah Moi and 3 star cornerback Treshon Broughton, are "most likely" going to sign in February in time for practice this summer. The fifth name, a player from San Francisco Community College that committed yesterday, is 4 star safety Shalom Lunai and Ransford hasn't been able to confirm when he will sign, but expects him to sign in time for spring classes as well.

We've written our thoughts on each of these players when they gave their verbals. You can read our review of Porter and watch his highlight reel here. Our look at Mitchell and Moi and their highlights can be seen here (along with a look at DeVante Wilson who has since flipped to Cal). We looked at the third Riverside Community College player, Broughton, and his highlights here. Finally, our multimedia look at Luani can be found here (along with a look at three other huge commits from yesterday of the non-transfer variety).

Most of these players are looking like they can add some pop to the Cougs really soon, and they's great news. We'll continue bringing you all the recruiting news we can throughout the winter and into the spring. Also, make sure to follow Britton Ransford on twitter and read WazzuWatch.com for even more recruiting goodness.
