National Signing Day Insider 

By Post Staff

Hello college and high school football fans, and welcome to the National Signing Day Insider blog! The big day is on Wednesday, and we want this to be your one-stop destination for all your Signing Day needs.

Want to find out where our local athletes are going to play? We will cover every local signing, from Palm Beach Central’s David Ahola to Pahokee’s Antavious Wilson. Our high school and college correspondents located across the state will be calling in with news throughout the next two days, and it will all be posted here. (p.s. feel free to contact us about local signings we may not have heard about.)

Want to see how UF’s recruits stack up against Tennessee and other SEC rivals? Or how the addition of Miami-Northwestern QB Jacory Harris at UM will affect the status of red-shirt freshman Robert Marve? We’ll have that too, along with rankings and inside information from top national scouts on the ACC, FSU, FAU, FIU, USF, UCF, and any other combination of U and F I may have missed.


We’ll keep you updated on the big national signings, like Jeannette, Penn. quarterback Terrell Pryor, and on our neighbors to the south, like cornerback Brendan Harris of state champion Miami-Booker T. Washington.

We will be posting heavily throughout the day, so make sure to click on “more archives” before you yell at me for ignoring your child. And this blog can also be a forum for you to sound off on your favorite players and college teams (with PG-13 trash talk highly encouraged).
