IJGT celebrates the NCAA’s Early Signing Period with an IJGT Photo of the Week

November 12-19, 2014, served as the NCAA’s early signing period. For many IJGT juniors, the week-long period meant the lengthy search for the college of the future was over. More than 20 juniors playing on the IJGT put on their new school colors, pulled out their finest pens and made their commitments by signing their National Letters of Intent (NLI).

“A binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an NLI member institution,” the NLI establishes a student-athlete’s intent to attend a particular university and to participate in a given sport.

Those IJGT members who participated in the early signing:

Bunyaporn “Nat” Zeng University of Wisconsin
Connor McKay Lipscomb University
Masato Yoshitsugu Hawai’i Pacific University
TJ Kaczan California State University – Bakersfield
J.D. Moore St. Peters University
Aaron Terrazas Oklahoma University
Isidora Nilsson University of South Carolina
Min Yi “Samantha” Huang University of North Texas
Cara Basso Penn State University
Will Hicks Erskine College
Chomchana “Cake” Phuchanbanchob California State University – Northridge
Yeji Shin Georgia Southern University
Will Miles University of South Carolina
Rachel Corry University of Virginia
Kelly Whaley University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill
Thomas Avant Drake University
Kelly Anderson Northern Illinois University
Derrick Villarreal Charleston Southern University
Carter Ehms Cedarville University
Ryan Rose – Rutgers University
Tyler Dierwechter Stetson University
Clementina Rodriguez University of Washington
Keshav Sharma Erskine University
Kasidy Beckel Radford University
Emily Mills – Rutgers University

To celebrate our juniors, we shared photos of each junior as he or she proudly signed the National Letter of Intent. Chomchana “Cake” Phuchanbanchob and her coach, Richard Wedzik, are featured in this week’s special edition of the Photo of the Week.
