State players make commitment­s

- By Sean Patrick Bowley STAFF WRITER

The NCAA’s regular signing period for football players for the Class of 2023 started Wednesday and will end April 1 for Division I recruits and August 1 for Division II recruits.

The early signing period was December 21-23. Below is an evolving list of Connecticu­t natives and other state prep school football players in the Class of 2023 who have signed letters of intent to play football for Division I and Division II college programs or have committed to play at other levels.

The list, which will include all high school and prep players in Connecticu­t, has been compiled by the staff at GameTimeCT through various sources. Prep school players have their hometowns or previous schools noted in parenthese­s.

It will constantly be updated beyond both National Signing days, into the summer as more and more players make their decisions. Not all players sign letters of intent, including Ivy League (Division I) programs and all Division III programs.

While we will attempt to get everybody listed, it isn’t currently comprehens­ive. Players who have signed or schools who have a list of players who have signed should notify Sean Patrick Bowley at sean.bowley@hearstmedi­ or on Twitter @SPBowley to be included. You can also send your signing day photos for display on our gallery.

As of Wednesday, Feb. 1
