SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - With the new Early Signing Day available, many high school student-athletes can go ahead and make their college choice official with plenty of time to spare. For a few others, it gives them the chance to enroll in school early and begin their college athletics career a semester ahead of time.
