Today, a bunch of middle-aged men -- who will call out of work sick and physically attach themselves to a computer screen all day -- will sweat the decisions of 17 and 18 year old high school kids. And you can take it all in with a full 10 hours of TV coverage on ESPN, or ESPN3 for those stuck at the office.
That's right, Superfans ... it's National Signing Day 2011!
My knowledge of recruiting is about as good as Boston College's 2010 red zone offense, which is to say, not good at all. So help us out by leaving your thoughts on the recruiting class below.
As of this morning, Boston College had 23 commitments from potential recruits. Two of those commits -- Mehdi Abdesmad and Albert-Louis-Jean -- have already enrolled at the school. According to a report in the Sun Sentinel, Miami went hard after BC QB commit Christian Suntrup over the weekend. While Suntrup isn't expected to drop his commitment to BC today, I suppose the possibility remains.
The current recruiting class is the 37th ranked class according to Rivals (4, four-stars, 9 three-stars), and the 34th best class per Scout (1 four-stars, 16 three-stars). Here is a look at the current recruiting class:

I would imagine things will be pretty quiet on the Heights during the day. Spaz has scheduled a presser at 4 PM to announce the signing of this year's class. Use this post to grind work productivity to a halt and leave your thoughts on National Signing Day.
And to our newest class of recruits, welcome to the Heights! Will have more thoughts on the class once everyone signs and Spaz has his presser. Go Eagles!
