    Default 2018 National Signing Day (Feb 7, 2018)

    Already having a few names pop up here and there. We will know on Wednesday and as with the last few years, there will be long lists of JC and HS signees. As for the Weevils, word is a really good runner out of TN is coming and some immediate DL help. Looking forward to seeing everyone's list.

    To be fair, he is going to the Hogs as a PWO.

    Not taking anything away from him, sounds like he's following his dream and that's awesome, but if you're worth anything at all at the DII level, you're more than good enough to be a PWO for a DI school.

    Either way, good luck to him. You never know what can happen. Just look at the Hastings kid from PA at Auburn.

    Henderson probably signed 15 DB's. Looking for that diamond in the rough.

    I was impressed by his film. Big hitter with good ball hawking skills. He would have been a contributor his first year at OUACHITA. Easily a FCS talent.

    Henderson and UAM could easily end up with 40 plus signees. They are just offering every kid who knows how to put on a helmet and wants to play football. Looking for that diamond in the rough.

    The Reddies sign 48. I think people like red over purple.

    D2 teams are allowed 36 equivalent scholarships to field a team. Do the math. Then see why I say quality over quantity.

    To be fair Fred, us private schools are at a disadvantage in terms of numbers. HSU can offer a player 1000 a year and academics or grant money will pay rest of tuition at public institution and essentially a full. Offer a 1000 a year at HU or OBU and it won't even be close to full scholly.

    That's why private schools can't shoot craps. OUACHITA seems to get the majority of the best Arkansas highschool D2 caliber players every year.

    I am aware of the 36. I know some of them are signing with no money. I know a RB that played for years on next to nothing scholarship money. He was a quality player in the GAC. You also back an Arkansas school and know about the Arkansas Scholarship Fund for the Arkansas HS kids. Tuition is lower at state schools and some kids/parents take advantage of this opportunity to close the gap. Not to mention they just want to play for HSU over OBU. :).

    I also personally know kids that have played FB for some of the private schools like OBU and HU, and the AR Scholarship helped them close a financial gap and were able sign with a higher cost private school.

    I think you can agree that you have seen quality players come from all of the GAC schools. And I think you can also agree that we have seen non quality players come out of all the GAC schools.
    Yep. This is going to be a fun year.
