ESPN to provide live National Signing Day coverage

National Signing Day is one of college football's most important days of the offseason. Of course, recruiting is similar to drafting in the pro ranks because it certainly isn't an exact science. But the programs that land the best high school players in the nation ultimately are able to win consistently on Saturday.

Because of the day's importance, ESPN will have expansive and in-depth television coverage, as the network will air a record 10 hours of programming revolving around the nation's top prospects and top teams. ESPNU's National Signing Day Special will run from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. ET on Wednesday, and the analysts will have all of the news and breakdowns on recruiting's biggest day. The show will also be on ESPN3.com.

Among the players making their college choices known on national television are: offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, running back Isaiah Crowell and safety Erique Florence.

The network will also interview South Carolina high school defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who is deciding between Alabama and South Carolina. The nation's top recruit will reportedly make his announcement on Feb. 14, his birthday.
