National Signing Day open thread

Today is signing day! The future of every football program across this great diverse nation of ours will be held hostage by a bunch of high school kids and, knock on wood, decent fax machines.

These are the moments that make or break a coaching staff. You don't bring in the recruits, you're not going to win and if you don't win...well I don't need to finish that one for you.

So, as it is every year, the top recruits will fax in their letters of intent and all will be right with the world. Because these kids haven't played a down of football at the college level! That means the sky is the limit or something.

For Utah, it's a chance to cash in all those chips from their Pac-12 invite and Sun Bowl victory.

We'll have updates throughout the day, but if you're really looking for second-to-second news, head on over to Twitter and follow the following accounts: @utahathletics, @utezone, @insidetheutes, and, of course, @blocku.

The first faxes are expected early in the morning, so if you're up around 8:00 MST, get ready for the first wave.

After the jump, review potential Utah commits that are, at the moment, currently undecided.

Alphonso Marsh: Three star cornerback out of Compton, California, Marsh holds offers from Arizona, Tennessee, UCLA, Utah and Washington. Marsh will make his announcement live on CBSLA at 6:15 Salt Lake time.

Probability he signs with Utah: The word is good on Marsh. Expect him to be a Ute by day's end.

Brandon Beaver: Four star cornerback out of Compton, California, Beaver apparently has whittled his list down to California, Utah and Washington. Beaver will make his announcement live on foxsportswest.com at 4:00 Salt Lake time.

Probability he signs with Utah: Uncertain. I want to believe Utah stands a good chance of landing him, and they're definitely in the mix, however, he has favored Washington and Cal lately on Twitter.

Brandon Fanaika: Four star offensive guard from Pleasant Grove, Utah. Fanaika originally committed to Stanford, however, it appears he's opened up his recruitment and is now deciding between BYU, Cal, Stanford and Utah.

Probability he signs with Utah: Lots of crazy internet buzz surrounding Fanaika right now. No one really knows what's real or not - so, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Carlos Lozano: Three star offensive tackle from Monterey Park, California. He holds offers from Kansas, Kansas State, UCLA, Utah, Utah State and Washington State.

Probability he signs with Utah: It appears Lazano has narrowed his list down to Utah & Washington State, but he's not announcing a leader just yet.

Moana Ofahengaue: Three star outside linebacker from Lehi, Utah, Ofaghengau will be making his decision during the International Bowl, which starts on CBSSports Network at 4:00 Salt Lake time.

Probability he signs with Utah: He's looking good - but tune in to see for sure.

Raymond Ford: Three star cornerback out of Gardena, California, Ford is down to Cal, Utah and Washington State.

Probability he signs with Utah: This is one where I think only the player knows which way he's leaning.

The Utes stand a decent shot of getting most these players, so, hopefully, today is a good day.
