For a player to participate with a team in the spring he must be enrolled for the spring semester so he can be added to the roster for the spring. Once he starts classes he becomes an athlete for that school and from that point on has to continue on their roster or transfer out and then sit a year out. A NLI is only signed by a prospect, not an athlete who was already enrolled in the spring semester.
Hence this is why an EE can not sign a NLI, because they are no longer a prospect, they are an athlete. The only exception is a JUCO who is coming in and their signing day is Dec 15th I believe.
Memphstigers23, if they do indeed enroll early and not sign the LOI, are they a Tiger at that point or can they still jump ship on NSD?
