NACOGDOCHES, TX (Press Release)- Coaches across the country are entering the final stretch of the 2016 recruiting season and Stephen F. Austin is no different, canvassing the South in search of those who will don the purple and white at Homer Bryce Stadium.
Those recruiting efforts come to a head on Wednesday, February 3rd, as National Signing Day 2016 officially kicks off. Wednesday marks the start of the winter signing period as high school seniors can submit their National Letters of Intent to the school of their choice.
SFA will have full coverage of #NSD16, introducing fans to the newest members of the Lumberjack family. As in the past, Signing Day Central 2016 will get underway bright and early Wednesday morning, consisting of a live blog that will announce the signees as their NLIs are received and certified by the SFA compliance office as well as bios and highlight reels of the newest 'Jacks. The signees will also be introduced through social media on Twitter (@SFA_Football), Facebook (SFAFootball) and Instagram (SFA_Athletics).
SFA head coach Clint Conque will then hold a press conference at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon in the Lawton Room of the SFA Fieldhouse, showing highlights and giving insight into each of the Lumberjack signees. The press conference will also be streamed live on ESPN3, available online and through the WatchESPN app. Conque will also officially introduce SFA's six junior college transfers who signed in December.
The signing class will be the third for Conque in his tenure at SFA and is shaping up to be one of the deepest in recent history. Addressing needs across the board, as well as adding even more talent to a young Lumberjack roster, #NSD16 will mark the unofficial start to the 2016 SFA season, which kicks off September 3rd at Texas Tech.
