The Birmingham News reports that the women's soccer team at Gannon University will be the first in the country to accept an electronically signed letter of intent from a recruit.
The women's soccer recruit at Gannon will receive an e-mail with a link to click. Recruits need e-mail addresses to have already registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center.
The Esigningday e-mail serves as validation for security purposes. There's also an option for schools to ask the recruit to insert the last four digits of his or her social security number.
The link will open to the Gannon recruit's letter of intent and scholarship letter. There will be a place for her and her parents to sign. Depending on the tablet they're using, they can sign by using a mouse, a finger or typing in her name to create a signature.
