I don’t follow football much — let alone college football — so I wasn’t aware until about mid-morning that today is national Signing Day, when colleges sign incoming freshmen players to join their on-campus football teams. Which, I guess, is a big enough deal that Sports Illustrated (among other media outlets) is live-blogging the whole thing.
The second highest ranked running back this year is 5-star player Soso Jamabo, from Plano, Texas. SB Nation reported that several schools were competing for Jamabo with three — UCLA, Texas and Notre Dame — most favoured to win his commitment.
This morning, Jamabo announced that he would be committing to UCLA; and he made that announcement not only in a press conference but also on Twitter, where he tweeted the following tweet.
Officially Committed…Asian Girls Everywhere…UCLA??
