The University of Wyoming released their schedule for National Signing Day which is February 2nd. It will be a full day of activities that finishes with the Wyoming/BYU basketball game. Right now the weather is awful for most of the Front Range but there has been no indication that the conference or reception will be canceled or postponed.
A lot of high schools are going to be closed across the country due to severe weather. Most often letter of intents must be faxed but the NCAA said that scanned photos can be emailed that clearly show the athletes signature. A lot of recruits won't have access to a fax machine if their school is closed.
I'll be joining in the Wyoming conference call that is happening at 4:30pm. It will be exciting to hear directly from Coach Christensen since I live out of state and can't see the video highlights in person. Hope those that can attend enjoy the HEAVY hors d'oeuvres.
