National Signing Day 2016: How Pac-12 schools announced their commits on social

@wsucougarfootball/Instagram

In an era when almost every sports fan -- and almost every recruit -- is plugged into social media nearly 24/7, athletics programs across the nation have stepped up their games when it comes to National Signing Day.

But in 2016, our 12 Pac-12 schools went above and beyond to announce their list of football signees.

Here's a look at how the announcements were made from each Pac-12 outpost:

Arizona

 

The coolest thing Arizona did on Wednesday was feature each of their football recruits in a slick, imformative Instagram post. The background is sweet, the typeface is fresh and this year's OKGs are made to look ready for prime time.

Arizona State

The motto for Todd Graham and ASU when it comes to keeping players in the Valley of the Sun home is #StayTrue, and they were all-in for that with these slick graphics, complete with special designations for each player's key skills.

California

Clean. Informative. Smart. It all screams Berkeley. 

Colorado

Using Instagram to the max, 18 new members of Ralphie's squad were presented in stunning fashion.

Oregon

It wouldn't be the Men of Oregon without some glow-in-the dark swag.

Oregon State

 

Oregon State took to Facebook to #BuildTheDam in 2016, and the headshot coupled with a sweet action shot provides for a great announcement.

Stanford

The defending Rose Bowl champs went above and beyond to roll out #CardClass16, with nicely produced videos on Twitter complete with highlights and analysis from Stanford coaches.

UCLA

NSD16 II

Welcome to Westwood our next set of Bruins: Jordan Wilson, Brandon Burton, Jalen Starks, Audie Omotosho, and Jacob Burton. #ImABruin #SigningDay

One Facebook video. Every new Bruin. Highlights. Spinning helmets. It's all #4s up everything. 

USC

On the other side of the SoCal rivalry, USC was not to be outdone in the slickly-produced video game. THAT'S how you make an entrance in Troy.

Utah

At Utah, they call themselves a football family, so what better way to welcome a new group of Utes than with shoutouts from great Utah players of the past?

Washington

Beauty on Montlake. Beauty in these signing reveal videos from each Washington position coach, breaking down why their signings will make an impact at UW.
