Schools across the country received signed letters of intent for the 2016 season on Wednesday, where high school seniors across the country made their commitments official. In Utah, there were plenty of local kids signing their names, while plenty of others inked their LOIs to come to Utah's collegiate teams.

In this week's episode of the Deseret News Sports Podcast, DeseretNews.com writers Carter Williams and Ryan McDonald discuss National Signing Day and what it meant for Utah's FBS colleges as well as the kids that signed elsewhere, such as Brighton's Simi Fehoko (Stanford). They talk about who could stand out in the classes, including Utah's last-day signee David Luafatasaga, who flipped his commitment from Mississippi to the Utes and BYU's Troy Warner, who signed early for the Cougars, why fans should be wary of basing "recruiting wins" solely on star rankings and plenty more between and beyond that.
