Bumped. Nice move from Jim Mora's program. GO BRUINS. - BN Eds.
According to an article posted on UCLABruins.com, UCLA will accept National Letters of Intent tomorrow electronically.
By using SignNow, recruits will be able to submit their Letters of Intent without having to use a fax machine.
The article quotes Associate AD for Compliance Matt Elliott:
"Once the NCAA approved electronic signatures for NLIs, it was an easy decision to partner with SignNow on this project," explained UCLA Associate Athletic Director for Compliance Matt Elliott. "The technology provides accurate time stamps and ensures that we receive the signed contracts as soon as they are executed."
It also quotes Director of On-Campus Football Recruiting Pat Girardi:
"UCLA Football is all about forward thinking and using new technologies to improve efficiency and effectiveness," said UCLA Football Director of Player of Personnel Pat Girardi. "Signing a National Letter of Intent electronically will be cutting-edge, and we want this year’s recruits to be able to say they are the first to ever do such a thing. Our goal is to be on the forefront of exciting technology coming down the pipeline. This is just another advancement in the Bruin Revolution."
I, for one, am glad to see that the Birthplace of the Internet is at the forefront on this. Go Bruins!
