It is national signing day today across the country for college football teams.  This is where all the time spent recruiting, traveling and scouting pays off to get the players the want.

College football programs will be holding press conferences all over the country today to announce the new signees they have snagged to be in their program.

What is cool as well is some players haven't committed yet to a certain football program so coaches and teams won't find out until today.

You can go check it out today and see who the new Pokes will be at the End Zone Club, located on the second floor of the Jack Doland Fieldhouse.
