If this held, we'd be seeing all kinds of kids entering the portal this week, probably far more than will after this coming weekend. But guessing that does not hold.I think a lot of the timing of this has to do with the early signing period. You play during the year and get an idea of where you fit on the depth chart. If you’re not happy with where you sit you decide to move on. Your fear is, that with the early signing only 2-3 weeks away, you need to let schools know that you’re available before signing day and a lot of the spots are gone. Gives coaches a few weeks to make a decision on you or somebody else they might of been considering. Once the early signing period is over there will be considerably less opportunities out there.
