It’s signing day. The annual event. A culmination of predominantly male adults obsessing about the decisions of athletic young men in the age category of 17-18 years. It never stops being creepy.

As usual, this will be something of an open thread as we clock-in who officially signs with Pitt, and any info on any surprises. This being a serious and solemn event, it will be treated with the utmost reverence on this site.

Usually the process for marking whether a kid has signed or not is done by noting whether Rivals.com and Scout.com are listing them as signed or not. But things are a-changin’.

Pitt’s athletic department will be keeping things up to date — so the claim goes. It’s the first time they are giving it a shot so I guess we’ll see how they do.

There will be a webcam on the fax machine. Analysis of the signees between 9am and noon by Bill Hillgrove, Pat Bostick and Don Rebel (spolier alert: they are all awesome), and tweets of the signees faxed Letter of Intent with some alacrity.

Around 3pm there will be a live webcast of Coach Paul Chryst waxing rhapsodic over all the fine gentlemen who will be Panthers.

The commits can start rolling in as early as 7am. Get your coffee and try to wait a little while before adding the special additives.
