On Friday the NCAA Division I council announced an early signing day period for football, which would allow high school seniors to sign beginning the third Wednesday in December.
The rules allow seniors to sign during a 72-hour span, starting Dec. 20 of this year. That day was previously used for mid-year JUCO transfers.
With National Signing Day on the first Wednesday in February, that will remain for athletes not ready to sign in December.
