National Signing Day is the first day that a high school senior can sign a binding National Letter of Intent to play college football at an NCAA institution. A celebrated day as college's answer to the NFL Draft, it's a day digested and broken down by countless pundits, analysts, and fans alike.
Boston College's NSD brings the promise of future talent who may become the next great Eagle. Before Luke Kuechly, Mark Herzlich, Anthony Castonzo, and Gosder Cherilus became NFL athletes and stars, they were names coming to Boston College's fax machine, announcing an intent to play at The Heights.
That promise of the future is what makes National Signing Day so special. It's the hope that player names can go from being just names to being legends, that they can raise their own profile and the profile of those around them.
Dan Rubin and AJ Black discuss National Signing Day's 2016 impact on Boston College by going through the different positions and analyzing some of the names coming to BC. They'll look at where these athletes slot into play and what the future holds for the Eagles.
BC will welcome 16 recruits or more, including 13 "three-star" athletes, on Wednesday. Will one of them be the next Boston College legend? We don't know, but it sure is fun to talk about.
