National Signing Day 2016 Live Thread: Let's round up the 'Dawgs!

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

After an unusually eventful recruiting season the time has finally come for Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs to put the 2016 recruiting class in the books. In this day and time National Signing Day is both less and more of an event than in years past. More in the sense that coverage is now available from dawn till dusk, from every hamlet in college football, with live streams and fax cams and so, so much analysis. Less in the sense that so many of the really big fish in the recruiting pond either are already enrolled (UGA has six early enrolled including blue chip QB Jacob Eason) or won't actually decide on Signing Day.

But National Signing Day remains a de facto national holiday. For Georgia fans, it's going to be a big one, with multiple four and five star recruits still in play for the Red and Black. While the 'Dawgs won't get them all I suspect they'll get their share. And we'll be here all day to update you on the good news, bad news, surprises, twists, and turns. It's gonna be quite a day.

Go 'Dawgs!!!
