Welcome to Signing Day 2016

Dust off those fax machines and put some ink in your favorite pen. Signing day is here.

The day that keeps the fax machine relevant (and also provides teams with the talent that will guide them into the future) is here once again.

Today is a big day for the Cougs. It's the day that WSU takes advantage of their momentum gained by a run to (and through) a 9 win season and a successful Sun Bowl and bring the the future into their the program. The team has already used it to guide their recruiting so far. As of last night, WSU was ranked as the 51st best class by Scout and by Rivals, 58th by 24/7 Sports, but these numbers are almost certainly going to fluctuate as the faxes roll in (or don't roll in, as it may come to be).

If you are interested in following the action every step of the way, we have you covered all day. The first step is to sign up for text alerts. All you have to do is text the word CougCenterNSD to the number 84483 and we'll let you know whenever a new fax comes in.

After you sign up for the text alerts, then you can read up on how signing day works while you wait for the first commit. Here's a great write up on how all of those ranking systems work.

After that, you can listen to Britton and Michael talk all about the big day on the latest CougCenter hour. The show is always worth a listen, and this episode is no different, especially for all the recruiting fans out there. While you listen, take a look at who the Cougs have committed, and who they're targeting, on Britton's big boards. Here is his write up on the offense, and here is his look at defensive recruiting.

But the fun doesn't end there. Britton, Jeff, Brian, Michael and a cast of many talented folks will bring you all the coverage you could ever hope for. Here's a look at what is planned for the big day.

Signing day is the first step on the way to the 2016 season... Get excited, folks.
