Proposed Early Signing Period Won't Solve Problems

So the American Football Coaches Association favors creating an early-signing period for football. Ok, that's good. The problem? They favor creating such period in mid-December. Forgive me, but what's the point? Of the kids who switch commitments and other bumps in the road, I'd guess most happen well before this time. Creating this period less than two months before the traditional signing period doesn't seem likely to cure the problems caused by all these early commitments and changes. Of course, there is no guarantee the proposal will pass. Other such proposals have failed before.

That said, here's an interesting item about Texas and its 2009 recruiting class, with a 'what if' the Longhorns had taken instate prospect Chase Daniel instead of Colt McCoy.
