National Letter of Intent
The National Letter of Intent (NLI) is an official document administered by the Collegiate Commissioners Association (CCA) and used by institutions to establish a prospect's commitment to attend a certain university. Once a prospect signs a NLI to attend a university, other institutions are prohibited from recruiting them any longer. In addition, the day after a recruit signs with a particular university, coaches from the school may have unlimited contact with the signee as well as unlimited telephone calls and text messages.
Although the recruiting process may be over once a prospect signs a NLI, they remain a prospective student-athlete until they enroll and attend classes at the university.
