Default College Football Could Have Possible Early Signing Period

Quote:
A committee examining college football's recruiting process has recommended the NCAA adopt an early signing period in December, CBSSports.com reported Monday.

The recommendation calls for an early signing period on Dec. 16 lasting for 72 hours. If approved, it would go into effect in 2016.

The Conference Commissioners Association, which oversees the National Letter of Intent program, will consider the recommendation during a spring/summer discussion period before it can be adopted.

Many college coaches have advocated for an early signing period to alleviate the pressure surrounding National Signing Day in early February. Players are often pressured into scheduling late visits in hopes that they can be flipped, and coaches feel pressure to continue to recruit committed prospects in order to keep them from changing their minds.

SEC coaches were reportedly unanimous in their support last spring for an early signing period in early December, though the league took a more nuanced stance -- saying it would propose a December date if the national conversation pointed toward an early signing date but would prefer the process to remain as is. Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said last May he'd prefer an even earlier date in August.

I would be for it.

I would only be in favor of this if the signing period fell outside of exam time for high school kids.

Default Re: College Football Could Have Possible Early Signing Period

When can players start taking their official visits? My only concern about an early signing period would be that with football season being in the fall kids could be signing with programs without ever going to the campus. While it may be unlikely with the ability to take unofficial visits it could still be an issue for some who may not have the funds to get to campus on their own or who don't have time to get to campus at any point other than summers and are unable to experience the school while classes are in session (live to far away).

The Official Visits will have to change to Junior years imo.


http://www.collegesportsscholarships...act-visits.htm

Rule states you can't take official visits until the first day of your senior class.

You got 10 days unexcused absences when I went to High School, so it's possible to take an official during the school week if the player wants to, or take it during a bye week in the football season.

Duration of the visit can only be 48 hours.

I think changing it to January of the Junior year would work out great. Making the Spring game a big recruiting weekend for recruits.

It would help a lot of teams outside of the traditional powers.

I wonder what Nick Saban, Urban Meyer and even Butch Davis think of this proposal?

If this is approved, it would likely be approved for a two year trial in Dec 2015 and Dec 2016 then reevaluated.
