Early Signing Period Comes To College Football

A Very, Merry Malikmas!

NCAA Football: Texas Spring Game John Gutierrez-USA TODAY Sports

Mothership with the deets.

The early signing period goes into effect this year, making Class of 2018 recruits the first to have the choice of using it.

The signing period will last 72 hours, beginning Dec. 20 and running through Dec. 22. Players who choose to sign early this year can take official visits after their senior year of high school begins, as has been standing NCAA policy. (For future years, the official visit period is slated to move up to April during players’ junior years.)

After passing NCAA muster, the decision was ratified by something called the Collegiate Commissioners Association.


Bud Elliott also took a look at prospective winners and losers and made a suggestion about coaching changes which seems fair.

So, Malikmas could take on a whole new meaning. What say you all?
