National Signing Dud

Wednesday's start to the National Signing Period was B-O-R-I-N-G.
Sure, J.J. Moore committed to Pittsburgh.
And Hippolyte Tsafack committed to Memphis.
And Luke Cothron didn't sign with N.C. State despite being committed to N.C. State.
That's all interesting.
"The day in general has been pretty uneventful," said Scout.com's Evan Daniels. "There's been a few things happening here and there like Tsafack to Memphis and Moore to Pittsburgh, but in general there hasn't been much drama."
Things will get more interesting Friday when Harrison Barnes (ranked No. 4 by MaxPreps.com) announces his college destination, and Tobias Harris (ranked No. 21 by MaxPreps.com) is expected to commit next week. That'll be two more elite recruits off the board. But it still seems at least nine of the top 25 prospects at MaxPreps.com will not sign early, which is rare. I'll have a column on this development late Wednesday/early Thursday.
