Today is National Signing Day, and I'll be headed to St. Francis for a 1:30 p.m. ceremony for Akeel Lynch (Penn State) and many other players followed by a trip to St. Joe's for a 2:30 ceremony for Chad Kelly (Clemson).
On the Campus Watch blog, Bob Dicesare has the rundown of UB's signing day class, which includes local standouts Jordan Johnson (Sweet Home), Jaden Cotton (Depew) and Corey Madlock (Cleveland Hill).
You can follow my day via Twitter at @KeithMcSheaBN as I gather info for a story for tomorrow's paper.
Speaking of Twitter, there has been quite a lot of feedback to my column today regarding high school athletes' tweeting.
We will have our live chat tonight as well, starting with a video portion at 8 p.m.
I promise I'll get to your question or comment in the chat -- but please be patient. It can get busy fielding all of the questions and I can only answer one at a time. And PLEASE don't enter your question/comment multiple times -- that only makes things more hectic.
Here's the replay of our video portion of tonight's chat (give it a few minutes to load):
