2011 National Signing Day: Nebraska Football Fresh Meat Open Thread!

Wooohooo!!! Here we are, the biggest day of the year for fawning over high school boys and worrying about whether they'll chose the same hat I wear! Woohooo!!!!! 

Dripping cynicism? Me? Naaaaa..... I am excited (just not in that way), I'm just not going to get bent out of shape about it. From the looks of it, Nebraska has a pretty darned good class. 

This is your 2011 National Signing Day Open Thread. 

After the jump is the list of recruits that are expected to commit to Nebraska. I'm not going to make promises about updating the list when LOI's are faxed in, and I'm not going to promise to update you when Todd Peat makes his decision at 9:30 AM CT.

If you want the quickest news about LOI's, get on twitter and follow the official Nebraska twitter account, @huskers. They will begin coverage at 7:00 AM CT. If you're an early bird, please post updates here as they roll in. 

I would like discussions about what all y'all think about this year's class.

Notes: Probably going to get taken in the MLB draft and make at least a million for a signing bonus. Given that, he'd be somewhat crazy to play for Nebraska.

Notes: Running backs ranked this highly don't come to a school like Nebraska to sit on the bench. If he's mature enough - he'll play in 2011.
