MADISON, Wis. -- It's the day that officially kicks off the new season in college football. High school seniors around the country make their choices public as to where they will attend college in the fall. It's a culmination of a long recruiting process for both the student-athletes and the coaches.
National Signing Day is Wednesday, Feb. 6, and Wisconsin fans can get all the up-to-the-minute information on the latest additions to the Badgers' family exclusively on UWBadgers.com.
Starting at 7 a.m. CT, our live chat with Director of Athletic Communications Brian Lucas will offer updates from the UW football offices as commitments are received, while also giving fans the opportunity to chat live with new head coach Gary Andersen and the Badgers' assistant coaches.
Live announcements on the Badgers' newest additions will also be made on Twitter via the official account of Wisconsin football, @BadgerFootball.
Then, at 11:30 a.m., Andersen will join UWBadgers.com senior writer Mike Lucas on `Signing Day Live.' It will be the first opportunity to see Andersen break down the Badgers' Class of 2013. In addition, Andersen will take fans' questions from Twitter.
