National Signing Day

February 6, 2013

The Lombardi trophy has been hoisted by the Baltimore Ravens and Monday marked the first day of the NFL off season.  There is no time to rest for NFL scouts, coaches, and other team personnel.  This is the time of year where scouts and player personnel groups for the pros are busy mining data, observing college players, and evaluating high school prospects as they take their first step into the national spotlight on National Signing Day.

The country’s top prospect, not a DC high school football prospect, Robert Nkemdiche, will take his talents to Ole Miss.  Ole Miss not only got the top prospect but also the top offensive lineman and defensive back in the country.  Ole Miss has not seen this type of talent for its college program since Eli Manning played their from 2001 to 2004.

Locally, the Virginia Tech Hokies have been one of the top ACC programs selecting some of the top prospects from Maryland, Virginia, and parts of North Carolina.  Most notably the Hokies pulled Kendall Fuller of Good Counsel who is one of the top defensive backs locally.  The Maryland Terrapins also have played a big role today selecting who is arguably the best prospect in the DC area, Yannick Ngakoue.  Both programs should benefit tremendously from the commitments these and many other young men are making today.
