Lincoln Riley, perhaps unsurprisingly, is a huge fan of the new early national signing day.
According to Josh Adams of the AP, Riley thinks that the early National Signing Day renders the traditional signing day in February “anticlimactic,” but still enjoys the extra time it gives him.
“It was a chance to go see these 2019, 2020 and even 2021 recruits. It’s a chance to evaluate more guys. You feel like you are using your time in a much more efficient way,” said Riley.
Of course Riley is happy with the early signing day. 10 of the members of his class of 2018 are already on campus, and he already has four four-star ranked commits in the class of 2019. Not to be outdone there, Riley has two five-star commits in the class of 2020.
The early signing day will be retooled as time moves on, as most things will in college football. Riley is correct to enjoy it as it is, because it allows him to get a head start on the dominant younger guys, and not worry about his recruits getting poached in January and early February.
