College commissioners enact early signing period for recruits

The period, approved by the Collegiate Commissioners Association Monday, coincides with the start of the junior college transfer signing window.

Previously, college football only had one day, National Signing Day on the first Wednesday in February, for recruits to sign scholarship agreements. The new legislation will allow official visits to begin earlier next season, on April 1, 2018. The move will also help Power Five programs presumably sign the bulk of their class leaving the rest of the programs to salvage the rest of the recruiting crop. Under the old rules, official visits were conducted after a prospect's senior season. It makes sense, then, that this should be a tool not used all of the time, but rather just for recruits who are 100% sure of where they want to play, and committed to the school, not a head coach (or position coach).
