OXFORD, Ohio - National Letter of Intent signing day is now just two weeks away and Miami University's fans, friends and family are invited to join in the fun for one of the most significant days of February's sports schedule.
More than 20 talented high school football prospects will officially announce their plans to join Coach Don Treadwell's RedHawk squad and, for the fourth year in a row, Miami's fans can be part of the action by watching RedHawk Recruiting Live! Presented by Miami Savings Bank ONLINE Wednesday, Feb. 6 via Miami All-Access at www.MURedHawks.com.
This year, for the very first time, the general public is invited to participate IN PERSON at Millett Hall's Hall of Fame area as a member of the studio audience. Valuable prizes including free tickets, a signed Miami football jersey, free weekend golf at Indian Ridge, free tent space for 10 inside Tailgate Town, free parking passes, and free food certificates will be handed out to several fans, both online and in person. The webcast will run for four hours, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET.
Not only will fans have the opportunity to get inside information about the newest RedHawk football recruits, they'll also learn about Miami's recruits for field hockey, soccer, and track and field from their soon-to-be head coaches. RedHawk Recruiting Live will again be hosted by the IMG broadcast trio of Steve Baker, Tim Bray and Terry Bridge.
Three different cameras will not only introduce fans to the new recruits through video clips, interviews, and photos, and they'll be able to get up close and personal with members of Miami's football staff.

February 6 will be the first day that Miami's Athletic Ticket Office will offer 2013 RedHawk football season tickets.
Next year's Mid-American Conference home-game slate will include contests versus Bowling Green, Akron, Buffalo and Central Michigan, plus a huge non-conference game against Cincinnati.
More information about the Miami season ticket plan will be forthcoming.
