Follow Josh VanDyke on Twitter

JACKSON – It’s been a tough year for most Michigan high school athletes, but Wednesday was a celebration for some seniors.

National Signing Day, which typically falls on the first Wednesday in February each year, marks the official time at which student-athletes can sign their National Letter of Intent to Play College Sports. Some student-athletes held their signing ceremonies during the NCAA’s early signing period from Nov. 18 to Dec. 16, 2020, while some waited until Wednesday to formalize their college plans.
