Signing Day 2014: the stories

The first day of the regular signing period has come and (almost) gone. In case you missed it, here are the stories we covered today and the links to those stories.

Joe Mixon signed with Oklahoma, as expected, and teammate Patrick Choudja chose Nevada in a special day for the Freedom High football program. 

De La Salle always seems to send a ton of athletes to four-year schools. This year was no different for the Spartans.

El Cerrito’s football players wasted no time in signing their letters of intent, and Arizona State’s Todd Graham, for one, couldn’t be happier about two of the Gauchos players coming to Tempe.

Deer Valley’s Nsimba Webster decided that family trumped all, as he chose to sign with Eastern Washington, along with twin brother Nzuzi.

Here’s the list of East Bay athletes, including soccer players, boys water polo players, and cross country/track and field stars who have signed or are expected to sign letters of intent in this period.
