What is the strategy behind not announcing the signings? High school kids surely are excited for it to be on social media to show friends and family. Could it almost hurt recruiting?

Sounds like UNI fans aren’t happy about not announcing there’s either I certainly don’t see any upside to it

I’m curious to know if they are not announcing it so other student athletes don’t know if they’re signing to a team that also signed another player for the same position. If you want to play RB and you found out a school already signed a RB to your class maybe you sign with a school that hasn’t signed a RB? I wasn’t a student athlete so I’m not sure how they look at that. That’s the only reason I could see them restricting that information.

If I was a coach I wouldn’t want a player afraid of some competition. Iron sharpens iron. But, I’m not paid to be a coach.

100% agree but that’s the only reason I can think of.

Positive vibes coming out of the WIU football office. I think it makes sense for all of us to see what February brings! ;) jc
