When it comes to an early signing period in football, the Big Ten seems to be on board — at least for the most part.
Michigan State and Michigan have both have declared their support for the Dec. 20-22 signing period that was approved last month. However, one of the biggest rivals to the local schools — Ohio State — has voiced its opposition to the extra signing period.
“We were not supportive of that legislation at Ohio State but since it’s passed we embrace it and deal with it,” Buckeyes athletic director Gene Smith said this week at the Big Ten’s spring joint meetings. “Most people felt there was a significant number of young people that were pretty firm in their decisions and needed that opportunity to sign early and make their commitments. If that’s the case it will play out over time. We’ll accept it and move on.”
