College football early signing period begins Wednesday and runs through Friday. high school recruits can sign their national letters of intent to lock them up in the colleges of their choice.
Reading: College football signing day 2021
this is the fifth year college football has had an early signing period, though big 12 commissioner bob bowlsby recently said there’s a chance the recruiting schedule could get back on track previous to having only one national signing day, on the first Wednesday of February.
This cycle’s recruits had to navigate through a mandatory blackout period for over a year due to the covid-19 pandemic. some have also had to manage the task of navigating where to sign amidst a turbulent carousel of coaches.
We’ll keep you updated with news, analysis, highlights, updated class rankings and more over the next few days.
