This is the perfect example why kids should be allowed to sign a LOI right now with his parents approval......now that he has been to GA.

I disagree on that one. What happens if you sign the LOI and the coach is fired? Is it still binding? The uncertainty in coaching, especially with position coaches is why I doubt early signing of LOIs will ever be permitted because things change.

What happens if the coach if fired after NSD.....same thing. My point is it's nuts to make a kid wait a year if he "is sure" where he wants to go to college and has his parents written approval. I'm just sick of the term committed because that's not what it means in college recruiting. Committed is like going steady in high school.....till you find someone else better.

Disagree. While I acknowledge you have to draw a line at some point. I think they should be given as long as possible to make their decision without being BOUND to it. The early you allow them to do it the more problems there will be from it. Also, sometimes you THINK you are sure at the time, but you find out later you were wrong.

What's the point if they are sure.

Normally by the time NSD comes along 100% of head coach firings/movement and 99% of position coach firings/movement are done and the players will be walking onto campus to be coached by the people who recruited them. If you have an early signing period that will not be the case and it is unfair to the student athlete. Fans want an early signing period because it annoys them with the decommits but it is the fact that this is the biggest decision in their lives to that point and they deserve to have all the information in front of them when they make it and sign an LOI.

The point is they're NEVER really sure. If they stay "sure" until Feb. than at least it stood the test of time.

They should implement an early signing period and install a clause that if the head coach is different by the time NSD rolls around you are exempt from the original LOI

I'm fine with this. Basketball has an early signing period. It's all about making money which is why the rules are what they are now.

I would be fine with an early signing period, if kids had to take a minimum of 3 OV's prior to signing.

I would also need a clause in there to allow the kid out of his LOI if the coach is fired/leaves for another job before signing day.

They should be able to change their minds for what ever reason they want to. Kids decommiting in January is no big deal. Early singing periods would only make MORE problems that don't exist now. What happens if a kid signs in at the early signing period and wants to somewhere else before NSD? What are the teams going to do? Tell him no? Make him transfer and sit out? It accomplishes nothing good except makes the school and coaches look like a bunch of a-holes. Early signing period = entrapment, eventually the kids will realize that and none of them will sign anyway.

If there is a chance that he might change his mind, then don't sign the LOI in the first place.
One big reason for committing early is to shut down the recruiting process. Some kids don't handle the process very well. Once you sign the LOI, no more calls, texts, etc.

You still don't get it. There is ALWAYS a chance to change your mind. Have you never changed your mind on anything you were sure of before? You know what the divorce rate in this country is? Feelings change and no one can predict the future. And there is no point in making someone stay if they don't want to be there. And as far kids not handling the process well. If kids that don't handle the process well, they do things like commit too early, and they will also do things like sign a LOI TOO early. You say don't sign the LOI unless you are sure: well that is great to say that, but it's not realistic, because kids WILL and and no you just made a small inconvenience a much bigger problem.
