ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan Athletic Department will produce a two-hour National Signing Day Webcast live from Schembechler Hall on Wednesday, Feb. 6, beginning at 7:30 a.m. ET. The 'Inside Michigan Football Signing Day Special' will be hosted by Michigan football radio sideline reporter Doug Karsch and former U-M strong safety Marcus Ray and will be streamed free of charge on MGoBlue.com.
The show will include behind-the-scenes access, video highlight packages and biographical information on U-M's 2013 signees, as well as interviews with select Michigan players and coaches. Live cameras will give viewers the opportunity to see inside the facility as coaches and administrators gather to process the National Letters-of-Intent as they come off the fax machine.
Also on Wednesday, Michigan head coach Brady Hoke will discuss the student-athletes who have signed letters-of-intent to become members of the Wolverines football program at a 2 p.m. press conference inside the Junge Family Champions Center. MGoBlue.com will stream the press conference live and an archive will be available shortly after the event.
ESPN's Sam Ponder will be on site in Ann Arbor and reporting throughout the day from Glick Field House with up-to-date coverage for ESPNU's 10-hour National Signing Day Special, which begins at 9 a.m ET.
