MURFREESBORO - The Middle Tennessee Athletics Communications Office, in conjunction with the Blue Raider football program, have planned an extensive day of coverage for Wednesday's National Letter of Intent Day. In addition to the annual signing day ticker, the Blue Raiders will produce a one-hour live video webcast on GoBlueRaiders.com and complete coverage on Twitter (@MTAthletics) and Facebook.
Later in the day, the Blue Raiders will also hold its media press conference at 2 PM and will host its annual Recruiting Roundup at 5:30 PM. The Recruiting Roundup is free and open to the public.
The live show will air on GoBlueRaiders.com from 11:00 AM Central to Noon and will originate from inside the Blue Raider Recruiting Conference Room. The show, which will be hosted by Chip Walters and Chris Burnette, will feature behind the scenes video from the morning, interviews with coaches, a "Fax Cam" and video highlights of the new signees.
The ticker will update automatically and will add the latest signees as soon as their NLI is received by the football office. Visitors can view bios on the new Blue Raiders, including height, weight, hometown, rankings and vital stats.
A 2 PM press conference will be held for the media at the Kennon Sports Hall of Fame to officially announce the incoming class. The conference will be streamed live on GoBlueRaiders.com and archived for viewing later in the day on GoBlueRaiders.tv.
The day concludes with the Sixth Annual Recruiting Roundup at 5:30 PM in the Kennon Sports Hall of Fame.
Head Coach Rick Stockstill and his coaching staff will be introduced, followed by a video presentation on all of the Blue Raiders' 2013 football signees. Members of the coaching staff will then talk more in-depth with fans about the newest Blue Raiders and how they made their way to Murfreesboro.
Doors open at 5:15 PM and the program will get underway at 5:30 PM and conclude at 7:00 PM.
