It’s National Signing Day, which means all across the country, grown men are glued to computers and phones to see where teenage almost-men choose to go play football.
You try explaining that to someone who’s not from this country.
Anyways, as it relates to Mississippi State, the Bulldogs’ top target - hometown LB Willie Gay - is set to make his announcement around 9:30 at his school.
You can follow along live at this link right here, or just check twitter to see State fans cheering or jumping from windows.
UPDATE: WCBI’s Robbie Donoho is also live streaming it on Periscope:

Wondering what recruitniks think Willie will do? As of this morning, 247sports’ wonderful Crystal Ball feature showed Willie as over an 80% lean to MSU. That number had been much closer to 50-50 MSU-LSU as late as a day or two ago, and actually leaned in the Tigers’ favor very recently.
We will find out shortly, once and for all, where Willie is headed to play college football.
