The Pac-12 conference's first National Signing Day has come and gone with a lot of fanfare and two traditional powerhouse recruiting schools. While the Washington States, UCLAs, and Utahs of the world were having quiet days, the Oregon Ducks and USC Trojans were in the thick of the news all day long with potential signings.
