The National Signing Day held on February 2, 2011 has again made an impact. The sports fans went to a roller-coaster of emotions; from overwhelming happiness to unexpected disappointment and to overpowering shock as the different recruits commit themselves in one day. This was reported by Sports News sites.

Although other schools were not able to succeed, there were surprising results from the National Signing Day 2011. The top offensive tackle, Cyrus Kouandjio of Dematha High School initially torn between Auburn and Alabama has finally committed to play with Auburn. Everyone expected him to play with his brother, Arie Kouandjio who is playing for the Crimson Tide. But with the turnaround of events, the Tigers get two of the five-star offensive tackles as the team also gets Christian Westerman after de-committing himself from Texas. The Auburn Tigers foresees a good focal point of offense as Kouandjio, takes advantage of his size in playing the right match to defend the National Champion.

For the Alabama, they take pride in recruiting the top ranked linebacker, Brent Calloway, who first made a commitment to Alabama and had later on second thoughts to join Auburn. But on the morning of the signing day, he finally made up his mind to go to his original plans and sent his letter of intent to Alabama and left the Tigers.

Another surprising recruit from USC Trojans is the lineman, Seantrel Henderson. Initially, he made a verbal intention to join the Florida and other teams. But he ended up choosing the USC Trojans. Joining him are other top rank players like Demetrius Wright, Dillon Baxter and D.J. Morgan among others.

With the assessment of experts, the National Signing Day held last Wednesday, was dubbed as the best slot to the “wealthiest.” Top-rated recruits commit to the traditional powers. Thus, Texas, Florida, Southern California and Ohio State maintain their top rank status.
