All the work, the long hours on the road, and the visits by the Charlotte 49ers football coaching staff have all come down to this.

It’s National Signing Day, the first day that potential student-athletes can fax (or email) those letters in to their respective schools. Here in Charlotte, coach Brad Lambert prepares to meet the third recruiting class in program history. We don’t anticipate any surprises but will keep an eye on any new names and decommitments as they come in.

This is your place to discuss the happenings going on around Niner Nation throughout the day. Down below in the comment section, we’ll post about the recruits as we hear of their official decisions with analysis from our staff. You are free to join in the discussion throughout the day. Also, read up on the verbal commitments/decommitments at our Signing Day Primer. Our Twitter account (@pickaxedigest) is where you’ll find more analysis and thoughts from fans of the program; we’ll also live- tweet Lambert’s 3pm NSD press conference.

For a national perspective on things, check our our sister site, Saturday Blitz (as well as their Twitter feed @saturdayblitz) as they’ll cover all the big recruiting news from the power conferences. @FanSidedU will also keep an eye on things as well as update you on the latest college sports news.

Be sure to join the conversation! Whether it’s in our comments section or on Twitter, we’d love to hear from you.
