Jesuit High School National Signing Day 2016

I was fascinated by this year's scholarship and signing day process in April at Jesuit High School. With Jack's class as seniors, this is really the first time that I have known boys that have gone through the signing day process.

Talking to parents and others shortly after the National Signing Day event, I got very confused. I didn't realize that signing day has grown to include full scholarships as well as kids going to college to try and play. Signing Day includes walk ons?!?.

Looking at the NCCA site, by signing an National Letter of Intent, a college-bound student-athlete must attend the participating college or university for at least one academic year, and that college or university must provide athletic financial aid for that same year.

Jesuit High School said that a number of boys signed Letter of Intent Commitments. I am not sure what this means or if it really exists... I have searched the NCAA sites, but haven't found any references to Letter of Intent Commitments. Several people have told me that some of the signing day participants were just signing a blank piece of paper?!?

I am interested in following a number of these boys as they continue to play in college.
