National Signing Day

Today is the big day for college recruiting and while there are usually very few surprises, there might be a twist or turn as they day unfolds. The last few hold-outs for UCLA are Milton Knox, Datone Jones, and Hamani Stevens. All three are expected to sign with UCLA but you can never be 100% sure until that letter of intent gets faxed over to Neuheisel's office. Milton Knox won't likely announce his decision until later tonight. Prime Ticket will have a show covering the local recruiting at 6:00 pm PST and it is anticipated that Knox will publicly announce his decision at that time.

On the recruiting front, the Bruins picked up another quarterback last night in Kevin Prince. He was leaning toward UCLA this past summer but he ended up switching his commitment to Washington. I guess with the addition of Norm Chow to the staff, the Bruin Dream Team was too good an opportunity to pass up. So the Crespi High signal caller will be Westwood bound. The only question is when? He may go on a Mormon mission and not enroll for another two years. He is still recovering from reconstructive knee surgery after tearing his ACL during the season; so a gray shirt is another possibility with him not enrolling until January 2009 (and thus not counting toward UCLA's 2008 total count).

I'll have more on Signing day later.... stay tuned!
