Okay here we go. We have 23 verbal commitments that we are expecting to sign, one potential big fish, and with any luck a complete and total lack of drama. After the way that our 2013 has started that would be a nice change of pace.

This post will be our hub for all signing day discussion today. As the recruits fax in their LOI's we will make a note of it in the comments section.

Below are a couple of links that you might find useful today

OFD 2013 Recruiting Central

UND.COM will be streaming footage all day at THIS LINK. Coach Brian Kelly should be announcing the class at approximately 12pm EST.


The Numbers

17 Freshmen

22 Sophomores

18 Juniors

9 Seniors eligible to apply for a 5th year

23 Verbal Commitments

89 Total

With a total of 89 that means that 4 of the 9 seniors that are eligible to apply for a 5th year are already gone. The 9 seniors eligible to apply for a 5th year are listed below.

Players that we know are returning for a 5th year

Zack Martin

Chris Watt

Players on the bubble

Carlo Calabrese

Dan Fox

Nick Tausch

Players that I consider already gone

Tyler Eifert (NFL Draft)

Cierre Wood (NFL Draft)

Jake Golic

Tyler Stockton

What does this mean? It means we can take at least 1 more in this class before we get to the Foxabrese decision point. Last week Coach Brian Kelly also mentioned that Tate Nichols could be a "medical situation" so I expect that will make a 2nd spot available as well.

The 23 Verbal Commitments are all listed below. The 5 Early Enrollees that are already on campus have for all practical purposes already signed. The staff will be waiting on faxes from the other 18. Why don't these guys sign, scan and email these things? I linked Miesle's commitment posts to all of these guys except for Steve Elmer who happened to be the first commit. I couldn't find his which means I probably just didn't dig far back enough!

The Early Enrollees
