Signing Day: Christmas in February?
Signing day is like Christmas.
Wait a minute. Before we go any further with this analogy, I have to give credit where it is due. Our lead high school sportswriter Ryan Aber came up with this one, and I swear, it might be the best description for signing day ever.
OK, back to the analogy.
On signing day, your team gets to open all its gifts and see what it got. A four-star defensive back. An unheralded offensive lineman. The list goes on and on. These are things you intend to play with, but on signing day, all you get to do is open the box and peek in. You can ooh and aah over what’s inside. You can dream about what’s to be.
But then, you have to shut the box and put it away for a year, maybe even two. Only then will you be able to take out what’s inside and see what’s it’s like. Does it work? Is it broke? Is it everything you thought it would be?
