Junior days have become a big part of a program's recruiting plan. Former Texas head coach Mack Brown is the de facto pioneer of this important recruiting event, as he started bringing in high school juniors right after national signing day to tour Texas' campus and immediately foster relationships with them.
Today, just about every college football coaching staff has some sort of junior day. While many schools have already had their events, some have not, and other programs are having second editions.
Three SEC teams need to impress as many prospects as they can, while a new head coach at a Big 12 powerhouse needs to use this time to foster good vibes to recruits.
