In between announcements from key Texas Longhorns targets on ESPNU throughout the morning on National Signing Day, fans with the Longhorn Network will also have access to the all-day coverage of what will be a historic finish for head coach Charlie Strong and his staff.

Here's the release on what's planned:

National Signing Day arrives on Wednesday, Feb. 3, and Longhorn Network has expanded its coverage to provide comprehensive programming throughout the day. LHN will be live for five hours from the home of Texas Football starting at 7 a.m. CT, as the first faxes of the day begin to arrive.

Host Lowell Galindo will be joined by analysts Ahmad Brooks and David Thomas on a set at the Moncrief-Neuhaus Athletics Center. Reporter Jane Slater will report from the football offices, and will be the first to let you know as prospects officially become Longhorns.

Alex Loeb, analyst Emmanuel Acho and Texas recruiting expert Max Olson will offer additional insights from the LHN studio, and former Texas volleyball national champion Bailey Webster will monitor social media throughout the day to provide nationwide reactions.

Additionally, LHN will televise Head Coach Charlie Strong's Signing Day Press Conference live in the afternoon. At 6 p.m. CT, LHN will air a one-hour Signing Day Special that recaps all the events of the day.

So for those who aren't interested in following along with the decisions and National Letters of Intent rolling in via message board or Twitter, the Longhorn Network will be the ideal companion to Burnt Orange Nation on the day that serves as Christmas for recruitniks.

And the full schedule of events and times for Longhorn Network's Football Signing Day coverage:

Date Time (CT) Programming
Wed., Feb. 3 7 a.m. Texas Football Signing Day
