Signing day is the day prospective student-athletes sign the National Letter of Intent (NLI). The NLI is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an NLI member institution. By signing the NLI, a prospective student-athlete agrees to attend the designated college or university for one academic year, the designated college or university agrees to provide athletic financial aid for one academic year and other colleges and universities can no longer recruit the prospective student-athlete.
