Wednesday marks the first day of the National Letter of Intent early signing period for football and gridiron athletes from around the Shore Conference are making their commitments.

Below is a list of local football players who have signed their NLI to compete for either Division 1 or Division 2 schools or have announced a verbal commitment to that school. Division 3 programs do not require an NLI to be signed because they do not offer athletic scholarships and Ivy League schools and the Service Academies also do have commits sign an  NLI. All commits from those schools will also be listed below.

Anyone who would like to report a college signing and/or commitment can send that information to
