(WTXL) — From Wednesday, Dec. 21 through Friday, Dec. 23, some high school football players in Florida's Big Bend and south Georgia put pen to paper to confirm their commitments to college football programs during the national early signing period.
High school players along with two-year junior college players that plan to join either a Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) or Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) program and intend to enroll at the program's institution as a student are eligible to participate in the early signing period.
