ESPN has sent out a Press Release with information about their coverage of National Signing Day, next Wednesday, February 5th. Airing on ESPNU, the sports machine that prides itself on being the most upfront source of sports news (even if they are the TMZ of sports outlets), is dedicating 11 hours of coverage to the biggest day in college football commitments.
Beginning at 5 a.m. PT/8:00 a.m. ET, they will provide you with several talking heads to go over the newest holiday in the sports world.

In addition, ESPN is sending a crew to Westwood (as well as 11 other schools) to cover the day-long thrill ride. The Bruins are set to host ESPN’s long-time USC supporter, reporter Shelley Smith. Expect a lot of USC name drops even when they are not warranted.
