On National Signing Day, more than 75 local players signed letters of intent to continue playing their respective sports at the next level. A National Letter of Intent may only be signed by prospective student-athletes who will be entering a four-year institution for the first time in the academic year after they sign the NLI. Recruits who have signed NLIs must attend the schools they have signed with in order to receive financial aid, and NCAA rules forbid coaches from recruiting them further. After signing day, players who have not signed a NLI may still continue to play at the next level. We will have information on these athletes when these players sign.
