College football's anticipated national signing day is Wednesday and for Kent State the announcement of the newest Flashes football players will be celebrated at Water Street Tavern in Kent.
The event is scheduled to begin at 5:45 p.m. and Rob Polinsky will host a live radio broadcast at 6 p.m.
Fans on hand will have a chance to win prizes, including a KSU football helmet signed by head coach Paul Haynes.
The Record-Courier's Thursday edition will feature full coverage of signing day, including the team's official list of signees and player bios. However, here is an early peek at the list of recruits that have given verbal commitments to join Kent State's 2014 class.
