Here is the point I’m trying to make. The early NLI day begin December 20, 2017, for the 2018 recruiting class.
The Contact Period for the 2018 recruit class, open Sunday November 26 and ran through December 16. There were a total of 21 days for coaches to make off campus visits with recruits.
The early NLI day for 2019 recruiting class begins December 19, 2018.
Should the recruiting calendar follow last years calendar pattern, The Contact Period will opens Sunday November 25, 2018 and be open until Sat. December 15, 2018. This only leaves the coaches 21 days to make off campus visits before the early signing date.
Here is a link to the 2017-2018 recruiting calendar.
