It's National Signing Day and the college football world has come alive to praise Alabama and the rest of the SEC.

If you're looking for even more, Eric Weddle was on the radio this morning talking about which college recruited him and why he picked Utah.

So, who is the most surprising from that bunch? Weddle? Rivers? Crezdon Butler? Certainly plenty of ammo there for people that want to say that highly-rated recruits don't always turn out the way they're supposed to.
