Early signing period expected to help FCS programs

(STATS) - If the NCAA enacts a signing period in Division I earlier than the first Wednesday in February, what doesn't happen on the FBS level could benefit what does in the FCS.

Many coaches are embracing the proposed 72-hour signing period that would begin annually on the third Wednesday of December and precede the traditional signing period, which this year starts on Wednesday. It's when high school seniors can begin to sign a binding National Letter of Intent to formalize their commitment to a college program.

The December signing period would coincide with a period in which junior college players can sign with a four-year school. The proposal, submitted by the Division I Football Oversight Committee, will be voted on by the Division I Council at the NCAA Convention in April in Nashville.
