Full Coverage: Early Signing Day 2020

13WMAZ is your place to follow Central Georgia stars on Early Signing Day

13WMAZ has a continuous, real-time story of Central Georgia athletes participating in Early Signing Day.

WHEN DID NATIONAL SIGNING DAY BEGIN?

The modern-day incarnation of this coveted date on the college football calendar launched in February 1982, after the College Football Association (along with high-profile coaches) successfully lobbied for a universal date for all NCAA football institutions.

Since then, National Signing Day has essentially covered the first Tuesday or Wednesday of February; and within this uniformity, the TV networks (read: ESPN) found a way to market the coverage of the even, not unlike how ESPN transformed interest in the NFL Draft in the early 1980s.

WHEN DID EARLY SIGNING DAY BECOME A THING?

We're entering year four of this three-day window in December, where high school seniors can officially sign with their schools of choice before the Christmas and New Year's holidays.
