The New Orleans Saints hosted 23 local high school students for a National Signing Day event at the team's facility in Metairie on Wednesday.
Each player was given the opportunity to announce his college destination on the stage of the team's meeting room and sign their letter of intent with their family and friends.
Prior to the announcements, Saints RB Mark Ingram and Assistant General Manager/College Scouting Director Jeff Ireland spoke to the group and answered questions.
"It was great speaking to this group of players," said Ingram. "I remember when I was in their shoes and how nervous I was about the process. They have a lot to look forward to and I hope they have a lot of success."
Following the event, the players were interviewed by local media members and ate lunch in the team's facility.
