Signing Day 2012 is here.
The fax machine's day in the spotlight is at hand as the Owls next generation of football student-athletes will be sending in their National Letters of Intent in today, confirming their acceptance of a scholarship to compete for Rice.
The R Blog will be live at the Football Office on Wednesday morning with updates as the NLI's roll in as well as with some memories of signing days past.
David Bailiff will formally announce the class at a 2:30 press conference and fans can tune in for free on OwlVision .
Later today, Rice football fans will have a chance to join Coach Bailiff and members of his coaching staff at reception to celebrate Signing Day 2012 at 5:30 in the R Room. Bailiff and staff will show highlights of each member of the class. The party will run from 5:30-7:00 p.m. and will be held at the R Room at Rice Stadium to allow Owls fans to also attend the Rice men's basketball game against UTEP.
Tickets for the event are $10 person, which includes BBQ, beer and other refreshments. Tickets can be purchased at the door, or fans can purchase in advance by calling the Rice Athletics Ticket Office at (713) 522-OWLS.
