Wednesday, November 10 is the first day of the 2021-22 signing period for students enrolling in the 2022-23 school year.
We have written over 650 articles about prospective student-athletes from the class of 2022 who have made verbal commitments to swim or to dive for a college program. (Note: We have another 100 or so on our waiting list, and we’re getting to them as fast as we can.) Many of those verbal commitments become contractual agreements today, as the second Wednesday in November marks the official opening of signing season for the current seniors in high school.
The NCAA regulates when prospective student-athletes can sign a National Letter of Intent (NLI), which is the binding agreement between an athlete and an NLI member institution in Division I or Division II. In past years, there was a week-long “Early” Signing Period that began the second Wednesday in November, followed by a “Regular” Signing Period which stretched, for most sports, from February to August. In 2018, the NCAA instituted changes to the recruiting timetable and the two signing periods have now been joined. You can see all the signing periods for the student-athletes enrolling in the 2022-23 school year on the NLI website here.
While we are still adding scores of names to this database, here are the Class of 2022 swimming and diving commitments we have noted thus far:
