    Is there a date that NCAA recruits have to commit to a team to play for them next season?

    There are certain signing periods where they can sign their intent to play for a specific school, if they are getting a scholarship.

    But technically speaking, you don't HAVE to commit by any date, you can just show up and get added the first day of practice, or walk-on or whatever.

    A handful of recruits get added in the summer months just before the season, and some players always come earlier than originally planned (like Billy Ryan this year), and they probably didn't sign during a signing period.

    I assume you mean Phil Kessel, right? No he has not. Speculation has it that he's likely headed to either Minnesota or Wisconsin, but schools such as Michigan and Boston College are still in the mix as well.

    Marshall: TMHUNH has it correct. But I'll add a copuple of things to what he said.

    1) The signing periods occur in November and April. The early signing period in November runs about two weeks.

    2) Not all schools require National Letters of Intent (NLIs), such as the Ivies and the military academies.
