Report: Proposed June Signing Period Shut Down by Decision Makers

According to a report from ESPN’s Pete Thamel, a determination has been made on whether college athletics will be adding another signing period to the calendar.

After absolute chaos over the past two cycles, an earlier signing period—ahead of conference championship weekend—will help coaches balance the challenges of managing a roster, the transfer portal, a signing class, and preparing their team for a bowl game.

A third signing period was proposed to help alleviate some of the stress coaches are currently experiencing with a hectic winter schedule. However, it appears that the idea of a third signing period has been shut down.


Per Thamel, the Collegiate Commissioners Association took a vote amongst themselves and voted down the proposal of a June signing period. Thamel also adds that high school coaches in the south were very outspoken against the idea of a June signing period, and that the CCA is expected to confirm their vote on Thursday.

It appears that college football will move forward with two signing days—one in December ahead of conference championship games and another in February.
