Eight College Park athletes sign Letters of Intent
College Park held a rally November 13 to honor eight student athletes who signed their NCAA National Letters of Intent during the early signing period (November 12-19, 2014). Coaches, staff, parents and fellow students gathered to recognize the students’ contributions to College Park athletics and their commitment to the classroom.
On the national level, only 6% of high school student-athletes are recruited and signed to NCAA colleges. These signees must show success in both the classroom and on the playing field. College Park celebrated eight such student-athletes, seven who were recruited to D1 colleges from one team, a first for College Park.
