Football Set for National Signing Day
Sr. Assoc. Athletic Director/SID
BATON ROUGE - LSU will look to carry the momentum gained from its Cotton Bowl win into National Signing Day on Wednesday as the Tigers are expected to land another top 10 rated class under head coach Les Miles.
National Signing Day begins early on Wednesday morning and all of LSU's football signees can be tracked first on www.LSUsports.net/thelist, then on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/lsufootball and LSU Football's official football Twitter site at twitter.com/LSUfball.
Miles will meet with members of the media to discuss LSU's 2011 signing class at 4 p.m. on Wednesday. Miles' comments can be seen on the Internet at www.LSUsports.net/live or heard on the radio in the Baton Rouge area on ESPN Radio 104.5 FM.
Miles will address the LSU fans and introduce his coaching staff at 5 p.m. at the 16th annual Bayou Bash at the RiverCenter in downtown Baton Rouge.
LSU goes into 2011 National Signing Day riding a streak of five straight years in which at least one of the major recruiting services has ranked the Tigers in the top 10.
