By: MATTHEW B. MOWERY, February 5, 2020, 11:09 am

With National Signing Day upon us, players are putting their college decisions in stone, locking themselves in for four or five years by signing their National Letters of Intent. Here’s a look at the football players from around Michigan who have signed so far today to play at Division II schools, particularly those in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. This list is a work in progress, so if someone signs later, please let us know, and we’ll add them to the list.
