Today marks the opening day of the spring signing period for college basketball, a period that runs from April 13 through May 18.
UTEP, which has eight early signees already and two players already on campus, is not expected to sign anyone today. Of course, basketball players seldom sign on the opening day. Every football player does. Not basketball players.
The Miners might be signing another big man by the end of this week, though.
There seems to be no room for more signees. But, with eight signees, two on-campus players and a pair of freshmen who were suspended for "lack of academic progress" during the season, there is always the chance that one of these young men might not make the grades -- or test scores.
Time will tell.
One thing is certain. We're all going to need a roster next season as we try to put names to faces.
