2011 National Signing Day Announcement Times Schedule: Curtis Grant, Cyrus Kouandjio, And More

It's 2011 national signing day, college football recruiting Christmas. And you wouldn't charge downstairs to open your presents without a detailed schedule that depends on a giant television network wrangling teenagers into public speaking events, would you? 

ESPNU will be broadcasting all day long, planning to show at least eight commits live, three of which appear to be happening all at once. But four- and five-star players will be announcing all day long, beginning with Erique Florence at 8 a.m. ET. Also, it's surprising to note so many defensive tackles will be announcing around lunchtime (six of them!), as they're among the players least prone to missing meals.

Fans of schools like Alabama, Auburn, FSU, Ohio State, and USC should stay glued to this signing day StoryStream, but plenty of other teams have dogs in todays fights as well.

Based on Rivals' latest schedule, almost all of which I've been able to confirm elsewhere, and the list of expected announcements provided by ESPN, here's the current slate. Remember, of course, that we're talking about 17-year-old boys, so things can change without warning. Also in the case of players like  Kouandjio, weather may impose delays of its own.

Still, here's a list of four- and five-star players who are expected to announce today (all times ET):
