It's Christmas morning for college football coaches around the nation. Whereas your typical Christmas morning involves a tree and presents, these coaches are more interested in the paper coming through their ancient fax machines.

For Middle Tennessee State, the morning actually had its fair share of excitement, as the Blue Raiders secured the commitment from former Southern Miss commit, RB J'Vonte Herrod.
The good times did not stop there, however, as Oxford (MS) DE Darrius Liggins, who had been sought after for some time, made his decision official as well, signing with MT over Miami (FL) and Southern Miss.
