DESTIN, Fla. - The Southeastern Conference is preparing for the possibility of recruiting reform, change the football powerhouse would rather avoid.

Commissioner Mike Slive says the conference agreed Wednesday on an early signing day model that would be presented to the Collegiate Commissioners Association if necessary.

The SEC would prefer to keep things status quo, with the signing period starting on the first Wednesday in February.

But if things change, the SEC has an idea.

The conference is essentially responding to the Atlantic Coast Conference's desire to create an early signing period in August. The SEC wants no part of that. The conference would rather allow recruits to sign on the Monday after Thanksgiving.
