Western Pa. football recruits make official commitments during early signing period

Wednesday, December 18, 2019 | 8:41 AM

The early signing period for Division I football recruits arrived Wednesday and high school seniors across Western Pennsylvania took to social media to reveal their official commitments.

FBS and FCS recruits can sign a National Letter of Intent through Friday or wait until the traditional signing period Feb. 5.

The service academies (Navy, Army, etc.) don’t use LOIs but instead provide a certificate of commitment athletes can sign ceremonially. Additionally, Ivy League schools don’t offer athletic scholarships, so those recruits also aren’t required to sign LOIs.
