National Signing day comes every year on the first Wednesday in February when high schoolers put pen to paper and make their college athletics dreams a reality.

In Central Texas the day was highlighted by 27 student-athletes signing their National Letters of Intent to play football for the Bears. The recruiting class is comprised entirely of freshman and predominantly made of Texas high school athletes. But seven out-of-state signees are included with three from New Jersey, one from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida and Louisiana.

A new chapter also began for hundreds of local high school athletes as they signed their own National Letters of Intent and Channel Six news was there to capture many of these milestone moments.
