Signing Day Update

Today is "National Signing Day" for many Division I schools and sports.

The Gophers have a big ceremony planned at the McNamara Center to announce their football signees this afternoon.

However...

The Gophers have lost one of their "blue chip" recruits in the last 24 hours. Henry Sibley quarterback, Phil Haig, a prep athlete long-expected to sign with the Gophs, has pulled his oral commitment off of the table. Haig was ranked the #26 quarterback nationally by Rivals.Com.

As reported in the Star-Tribune this morning, Haig rescinded his verbal after Gopher Head Coach Tim Brewster's quarterback son, Clint (#17 at Rivals.Com), committed to the Gophers over the weekend. The younger Brewster had been set to attend Illinois.

In a strange twist, Illinois, along with at least one other Big Ten school, is now in pursuit of Haig.

The NCAA signing period extends over the next 14 days, and watching where Haig ends up after the music stops should be interesting.

I'll admit it...it was me. I just can't abide by the pig slaughtering red uniforms at the U of M.
