Football and soccer players from around the area will begin signing national letters of intent to accept athletic scholarships from Division I and Division II college programs Wednesday. Many of the top Division I-bound football players signed during a new early signing period in December. This regular signing period lasts until April 1. For soccer and men’s water polo, the signing period runs through Aug. 1. All other sports had earlier signing periods, while athletes in all sports can sign from April 1 to Aug. 1. Coaches who have athletes signing official NLIs and have not already submitted them should email the name, high school and college of each player to firstname.lastname@example.org, katherine.dunn@baltsun or email@example.com.
