First of all, treat this as home base for all discussion about National Signing Day today. It is during this time where Kentucky , and most other schools, will learn the makeup of the lion's share of their 2012 recruiting class.
I'll be moving this thread to the top all day, so look for new posts and updates just below this one. I will update this post periodically with new information as it comes in.
National Signing Day is a huge deal around most of the SEC, but at Kentucky it is less so. While UK fans are very fond of our football, this is mainly a basketball school and therefore this event is not nearly as big as something like Big Blue Madness. The thing that makes NSD unique is the sheer number of athletes each school signs, so the news dribbles in all day. Plus, for the schools who tend to get highly-ranked national recruiting classes, there is often quite a bit of drama about whether this prospect or that will actually sign his National Letter of Intent, or hang out for awhile considering others.
We'll see. Updates as we get them in. After the jump, we'll list what we know. Be sure to hit refresh often.
