AUSTIN (KXAN) — An early signing period for football begins at the end of the year. Senior high school football players with scholarship offers may sign a 2018-19 National Letter of Intent (NLI) during a 72 hour period spanning from December 20-22.

The period, approved by the Collegiate Commissioners Association Monday, coincides with the start of the junior college transfer signing window.

Athletes will still be able to wait and sign a NLI on National Signing Day, the first Wednesday in February.
