17 ROISD Student-Athletes have committed to colleges
Red Oak High School and the Athletics Department hosted college-bound student-athletes, their families, coaches and college representatives on February 2. Seven additional student-athletes signed their intent to various colleges, bringing the campus total to 17.
Students will be announced with their sport, position, and college of choice and then enter the gym with their parents. Following brief words from the district, Board, and coaches, the students signed their letters of intent then celebrated with family and friends.
National Signing Day is the first day a high school senior can sign a binding Letter of Intent for college football. Although there are numerous signing periods for college sports, football, which always falls on the first Wednesday in February, is the most followed. A letter of intent is binding for both the player and school for one academic year as long as the player is eligible to enroll at the college.
