Must-Read Recruiting Piece Gem: 3. DON'T TALK/LISTEN TO UNCLES. For some reason, national signing...


Must-Read Recruiting Piece Gem: 3. DON'T TALK/LISTEN TO UNCLES. For some reason, national signing day is every sketchy uncle's Randy Quaid-In-Independence-Day moment. Oh, they may only get one moment, but this day of all days is it, since for one reason or another he has the ear of a very talented recruit, and will place himself between your lips and said ear until you give him what he wants. I have no idea how this happens. Sketchy uncles acquire a power unparalleled on signing day, suddenly growing to three times their size and becoming unofficial agents for athletes who are likely smarter than the Sketchy Uncle himself. After signing day they explode and disappear forever, perhaps reappearing only for the free booze and food at the NFL Draft party for the recruit four years later.
