Division II schools happy with national signing day

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- With national signing day taking place early this season in December, many Division II and III schools were happy with their later February signing day because they knew which players they were able to pursue.

Davenport head coach Sparky McEwen said Wednesday that he thinks it was to their benefit. "A number of those kids that were thinking they were gonna become Division I athletes, you know, they fell threw the cracks, and now a guy that was potentially a guy that could go on to play Division I falls in our lap as a Division II athlete."

GVSU head coach Matt Mitchell agreed. "I think it made things cleaner. Last year we lost six or seven guys on the last weekend. There's a lot more stability with our class, and I think the early signing day was an advantage."
