College football's national signing day is here, and so is all the hoopla that comes with it. Meanwhile, basketball's two signing periods -- an early one in November and a late signing period that begins in April -- are certainly newsworthy but often lack the intense drama (some might say melodrama) of football's one big day.

So that got us wondering whether basketball would be better off with a single signing period. It would certainly amp up the attention, but would it actually be better for the game? Luckily, we have our panel of RecruitingNation basketball experts to answer that very question.
