Wednesday is National Signing Day, the start of the official signing period for football and soccer athletes who will be receiving scholarships or some form of financial aid in return for attending and playing at their colleges of choice.
It’s become a de facto national holiday and a rite of passage for successful student-athletes across the country. This year, however the NCAA added an early national signing period for Division I football in December, which has lessened the impact somewhat of February’s signing day.
Regardless, it’s become vogue to commemorate the occasion by hosting a NSD ceremony at their school where they can take photos with their parents, coaches and teachers and maybe even talk about their moment with the sporting press.
We’ll be heading to a select few in Connecticut. But we can’t be everywhere at once. So it’s time to rekindle our tradition for Connecticut letter-signers here at GameTimeCT: Send us your National Signing Day Photos.
And here’s what football’s signing day looked like back in December.
We’ll also be on the lookout for Twitter photos, including official signing cards from college football programs across the country as they confirm their signees.
Here’s the list of NSD’s verbal commitments — for football, at least — from Connecticut’s public and private schools.
If you’re not on it, send us a note and we’ll get you on it.
