National Signing Day 2017: All-Name Team

Maryland Terps

National Signing Day, college football's marquee offseason date took place on Wednesday, with some of the top high school recruits in the country determining which program they will play college football for.

National Signing Day is a circus, of sorts, with coaches shucking and jiving to get recruits to flip at the last moment, and high schoolers going out of their way to garner attention like they've never seen before.

But one of the best aspects of National Signing Day is rather simple: The names.

There are over 110 FBS-level football teams and over 50 players per team, which means a lot of player names. With every passing eyar, we get a new batch of ridiculously named recruits.

Here is what we got for 2017.

Before we get to the FBS-level, we have to point out three names from the FCS ranks.

Kobe Buffalomeat, OL - Illinois State: KOBE BUFFALOMEAT. There are great names, and then there is this. Families don't have much say in a last name, and when you're given "Buffalomeat" as a last name, you roll with it. Naming your son Kobe is the definition of rolling with it.

Ye'Majesty Sanders, OL - Jacksonville State: Add this to the list of all-time greats like Captain Munnerlyn, Admiral Schofield, and SirValiant Brown. This is a football player that is always greeted with respect.

Octavius Pringle, DT - Coastal Carolina: He's got a first name of a Bond movie villain and a last name of a potato chip brand. This is good parenting.
