Today, the dream of playing college football begins for many young athletes. National Signing Day is a day that college football programs around the nation bring in their newest members. Yes, it might be a bit overblown at times, but we cannot forget that it is all about these student-athletes.

They are taking the next step in their education, the next step in their athletic career, and their next step in life. For those that are choosing to take their next step in Westwood, are in for a ride as the Bruins are heading into the next phase of the Chip Kelly project.

Last season, things did not go so well for the Bruins as they ended the season 3-9, but there was progress. There was also intrigue into what Kelly is doing. This is not a duplicate of the Oregon Blur, it is evolving.

It is now National Signing Day 2019 and the next juncture of this evolution begins now.

To all that are now part of the family… Welcome to Westwood!
