It's Signing Day!

Follow the action, HERE.

And don't forget the Signing Day Celebration at JPJ Arena this evening at 6:00 PM.  I'm going to try to make it out, but family duties may block my best efforts.  Anyway, it's a pretty fun event, free food, prizes, and it's good for the kids.

Charlottesville, Va. - Virginia head football coach Mike London and his staff will announce the Cavaliers' 2013 recruiting class at a National Signing Day celebration to be held at John Paul Jones Arena on Wednesday, Feb. 6. The event is free of charge and open to the public. Parking in the arena's main (west lot) is also complimentary.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. for the 90-minute event. Fans will have the opportunity to interact, take photos and get autographs with the coaches and members of the 2013 Cavalier football team on the arena floor for 40 minutes before the start of the program.

London and his coaching staff will then provide commentary and coaching insights about the recruiting class accompanied by highlights on the large video screens in JPJ.

All fans attending the event will receive a voucher good for a hot dog or slice of Domino's pizza and a Pepsi product courtesy of the Virginia athletics department.

Fans in attendance will also receive raffle tickets and have the opportunity to win a pair of season tickets, pairs of single-game tickets for each home game, a television from Crutchfield, a signed Virginia football helmet and other special prizes.

Roster cards featuring information on each signee, along with other promotional items, will be distributed by the Virginia cheerleaders and Cavman to fans as they enter JPJ.

The Cavalier Team Shop will also be open and feature special sale merchandise during the evening.

WINA radio (1070 AM) will broadcast its popular "Best Seat in the House" show live from the event and the Charlottesville Newsplex stations will also provide coverage of the activities.


  1. Kendall, Mike and Pierce: are there any important storylines to follow today? Are any of our commits wavering or in danger of flip-flopping today? Could we pull an unexpected signing?

    I want to make sure I know what to look for today.


  2. The important stroyline already played out, with [4-star OL recruit] George Adeosun choosing UVA over Georgia and Oklahoma. That was big.

    None of the commits are flip-flopping. That's a big change from early January, when we had as many as six potential attrites. But London and the staff firmed everyone up!

    We DID pull an unexpected signing, luring [3-star OL recruit] Eric Tetlow away from Wake Forest at the 11th hour.

    It's a good class, just have to rake the hay into the barn on what should be a top-30, maybe even top-25 (with the addition of Adeosun) haul.
