Fun, long-standing National Signing Day tradition could finally be ending
Recruiting drastically changed with the first-ever early signing period last season. With two different opportunities (three days in December or February’s National Signing Day) to sign letters of intent, the first Wednesday of February became more of a footnote in college football recruiting.
CBS writer Barton Simmons tweets that another tradition could be ending this year — faxing into schools the letters of intent.
HS coach just told me that his kids just have to take a picture of LOI and text it in to the school on NSD…and with that, I now pronounce the fax machine officially dead.

While it’s somewhat curious why it took so long for schools to accept letter of intent screenshots through text messages, there’s something special about the unique sound of a fax. Well, ok, not really, but somebody had to keep the fax machine in business.
Now it’s up to you, medical community.
The medical community is keeping the fax machine on life support. Literally and figuratively.
