Signing Day

Recommended Posts

If it’s good for USF then I like it, if it’s not, then I don’t. From what I have seen from today’s results, it appears that the early signing period is good for USF.

Well, schools offer a lot of commits and they have a pecking order.

The early signing day, separates those who really are committed from some who may not.

By the same token, schools may decide not to take an early signing from a commit and that let's a player know how much that school is really committed to him.

So, now we know who is really committed to whom.

In this way, those who haven't signed are free to look elsewhere as is the school.

Of course, there are those still left that have an understanding with the school that they are 100% committed, but just want to have their regular signing day like in the past.

At least now, it is easier to just  babysit many fewer verbals and it allows more time for contingency plans to be made, in case we feel that some aren't as firm as they say, by their actions in taking other visits and such.

It is good for USF.

It could even be better for USF, to have the early signing in August, before the recruits play their senior season.

Remember, we have a number of camps over the summer and thus have a first hand opportunity to see and get to know under the radar players that many of the big P5 schools don't know. So, we are in a good position make an informed decision to properly evaluate them. By the time December rolls around, many of those same players have had great seasons and more P5 teams are now offering them, which puts us at a distinct disadvantage.

A lot of schools take more commitments than they can sign.

How prevalent is that? If a lot of schools are telling kids, in the last month and a half before NLI Signing Date, don't bother sending us your LOI, I'd think there would be a lot more made of it ......... and maybe there is but I just haven't seen it.

We now have 14 commits left, soon to be 12. We signed 14, so did we send all 28 of them a letter? I would think that if I didn't get a letter, I'm lookin'!

Are schools allowed to send letters to players they've offered, but didn't get a commitment from? I would think that every school knows who their competition is for a player.

Difficult to tell exactly.

Depends on how many of the 17 sign early in January. They can be counted towards last year's class. I know of at least four early enrollees. So, we probably can sign around 12.  We will still have 11 verbal commits. So, as it now stands, we should be able to sign everybody.

29 total would be a huge class! Thank you for the info!
