You have no favorite boards.
I've learned quite a bit over the last few months of covering recruiting, but one thing I've noticed is that there is no standard for announcing a decision. Let's examine:
-Tell the coaches. Don't make it public. Wait until Signing Day.
-Tell no one. Not even the coaches.
-Change your schools attended on Facebook.
-Press conference at your school.
-Send Bo Pelini a singing telegram announcing your intentions
What would you do?

Your team. All the time.
i'd let me coaches know the night before and I'd have a big annoucement at school before my senior year if i had it in hand already. I would commit to Nebraska but after that i'd say i still am taking all my officals and try to line them up for when Nebraska's in town just so i could go on a trip and see my future team play
How would I committed?
I would find the highest ranked 5-star recruit, not committing to Nebraska of course, that is announcing on NSD. I would parachute in the middle of his announcement with the Vegas Flying Elvises. With my Big Red cape on, grab the microphone and announce. In the same breath, publicly ask Kate Mara to marry me. Then, bust out You Ain't Nothing But A Hound Dog.
Now, who would even remember that 5-star recruit? They would be thinking about this walkon going to Nebraska.
I would put Jimmy Claussen to shame. A Limmo just isn't enough for me. I'd show up in a Helicopter. Probably need a large stage with a couple of rappers warming up the crowd. I would have also spent the last few months really letting Mack Brown and Texas think they had a shot. Then when I mad the decision I would fake reach for a Texas hat only to push a button and make it explode or possibly fall into a tank full of sharks trained to attack Burnt Orange. Then some fireworks, maybe a laser light show when I put on the Husker hat.
I would do it Lee Corso style, have a few mascot heads sitting around. Then I would pick up the Herbie head and say sorry it was no contest on national TV.
It's funny how everybody considers honesty a virtue, yet no one wants to hear the truth.
