INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ The NCAA will take over the national letter-of-intent program, beginning Monday.

The national governing body made the announcement Friday.

In the past, the program has been administered by the Collegiate Commissioners Association and the Southeastern Conference.

The NCAA said it will not change the process between institutions and recruits or schools and their conferences, but that questions regarding letters of intent will go through the NCAA eligibility center.

By giving the NCAA control, there could be additional changes such as the possibility of adding an early signing period in football.

The CCA had administered the program since 1964.
