Below is a list of area class of 2015 athletes who have committed to play a sport in college since the fall signing period in November. Many have signed a National Letter of Intent.
National letters obligate the athlete and the school to each other in exchange for the promise of some athletic scholarship assistance. Unless athletes sign a National Letter of Intent, neither the school or the athlete is obligated to the other. The vast majority of athletes who sign national letters do not receive full scholarships, but instead receive some financial assistance.
We will run another list in the spring.
