National Signing Day 2013 Open Thread

All eyes on the fax machine, everyone... time to see who the newest USF football players will be.


You know, these commits don't have to use a fax machine. No one really does. Let's have Wikipedia tell us about the relative obsolescence of the fax machine in the 21st century office:

The once ubiquitous fax machine has also begun to disappear from the small office / home office environment too. Remotely hosted fax-server services are widely available from VoIP and e-mail providers allowing users to send and receive faxes using their existing e-mail accounts without the need for any hardware or dedicated fax lines. Personal computers have also long been able to handle incoming and outgoing faxes using analogue modems or ISDN, eliminating the need for a stand-alone fax machine. These solutions are often ideally suited for users who only very occasionally need to use fax services.

When was the last time you sent a fax? When was the last time anyone you ever heard of sent a fax? I mean, other than on National Signing Day? That's a discussion for the comment section, along with any other discussions you want to have today. This is your National Signing Day open thread, where we will all wait to find out which high school prospects are really and truly going to join Willie Taggart's USF football team this fall.
