High school senior student-athletes from across the country – including numerous Northeast Ohioans – will be signing binding national letters of intent, officially accepting athletic scholarships offered to them by a college or university, throughout the next week.

Today through November 18 marks the early signing period for the NCAA sports of baseball, basketball, bowling, gymnastics, golf, hockey, lacrosse, rowing, softball, swimming and diving, track and field, tennis, volleyball and wrestling.

Below is a list of area student-athletes who are expected to sign a letter of intent during the early signing period and the school which they’re expected to commit to attending in fall 2017. Division III non-scholarship signees are also included.

The list of expected signings has been complied by submissions provided by area schools and will be updated as warranted.
