What Does National Letter Of Intent Look Like?

On Wednesday, high school football recruits can formally declare their allegiance to a college by signing a National Letter of Intent.

The document must be signed in order for a player to get a scholarship and it sets forth the controversial rule that players can’t move when coaches change schools unless that player sits out a year.

It also allows schools to claim that a particular student didn’t get in for academic reasons if for some reason another prospective player comes along. Despite many calls to change what it is thought of as one-sided agreement, no substantive changes have been made in recent years.

Here’s a look at the document players will sign on Wednesday.
