Mississippi State head football coach Dan Mullen has always been an advocate of an early signing period.
It was discussed at length at this year's Southeastern Conference spring meetings in Destin, Fla., but nothing came of it.
Mullen was asked about an early signing period at this year's SEC media days and he feels that the league, and college football as a whole, are as close to obtaining one as it ever has.
"I think the early signing (period) is coming," Mullen said. "There's going to be an early signing point here in the near future."
Mullen is a fan of having it the Monday after Thanksgiving as the regular season ends that weekend. The SEC Championship is the Saturday following that Monday, but there are just two teams that will practice that week.
