Countdown to Signing Day

November 9, 2011. Circle the date on your calendar, because that day is the beginning of the one-week period known throughout college sports as Signing Week. Signing Week is the highlight of the annual recruiting calendar for two reasons:
(1) November 9, also known as Signing Day
, is the first opportunity for high school seniors to sign a National Letter of Intent with a Division I or Division II school.
(2) That week is the only opportunity for seniors to commit to a college program this year. The next opportunity is the spring signing period that begins in April 2012.
Our commitment lists (boys, girls) show a number of early verbal commitments - but those commitments are not official or binding. Several seniors who had made verbal commitments earlier this year have since changed their minds. November 9th is the first day when those commitments become official.
With Signing Week fast approaching, TennisRecruiting.net is once again ready to bring you all the action. These next few weeks, we have special coverage - known as the Countdown to Signing Day - to keep you up to date on all things Signing Week.
Take a look at our coverage schedule:
