After years of discussion, the NCAA Division I Council has voted to allow an early college football signing period, though the proposed rule still has to be approved by the Collegiate Commissioners Association, who will discuss the legislation in June. Let's break down the biggest changes.

Also, the early signing period will help with early enrollees. Beginning on December 20, 2017, high school players may sign binding national letters of intent with their chosen schools. If someone close to a recruit is hired by a college program he has to be coming on as one of the nine or soon-to-be 10 coaches on staff and not in another type of role. The ones who visit Evanston for football practice will soak in views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline.

== FBS schools will be allowed to sign only 25 members per class.

"I have no problem with the December date", he said. Official visits during this time will not be allowed to happen during a prospect's participation in a school held camp.

The proposal is largely seen as the first step towards a new early-signing period format, which the council is expected to revisit in meetings scheduled for June.

WSU does a great job at scouring the country for hidden talent. Still, this is closer to what most coaches want and gives recruits a chance to get the process of signing an NLI out of the way sooner.

Before the change, official visits were not allowed before September 1 of a prospect's senior year. The period would end the last Wednesday of the following June.

The legislation package the committee approved also would allow earlier contact between coaches and recruits, although CBS Sports reported that details of what that entails are unclear.

It's certainly possible, however, that Leach could keep the same official visit policy - cramming official visits into the summer and the two-week window following the season, then in January - in which point all of the above words were pointless.

This rule is effective immediately and essentially ends the lengthy, nationwide satellite camp tours like MI coach Jim Harbaugh's Summer Swarm Tour that became a hotly debated topic in college football the past two summers.

Riley has been passionate about the need for FBS teams to employ a 10th full-time assistant.

"For a mid-major school, it's a win all the way around". Still, it's hard to argue that the whole thing didn't spin out of control.

"I really like that schools can bring juniors in", said Dwyer coach Jack Daniels.

The two-year waiting period on hires applies to before and after the athletes enrollment at the school.

The University of Miami has the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation for 2018. This rule, referred to as IAWP (Individuals Associated with a Prospect), was adopted by NCAA basketball in 2010. I'm not going to play for my high school this year.'? The addition of another staff position likely will exacerbate budget challenges for smaller schools.

Schools could also benefit in other ways.

The NCAA Division I Council began meetings Thursday in Indianapolis, with a number of potentially sweeping changes for college football being put up for a vote.
