Football: Goodbye fax machines, hello electronic letters of intent

UCLA is among the first schools to offer recruits the option of signing their letter of intent on Wednesday electronically instead of sending in via a fax machine.

Recruits will be able to sign and fill out documents via computer or mobile device using SignNow by Barracuda.

"The technology provides accurate time stamps and ensures that we receive the signed contracts as soon as they are executed," said Matt Elliott,  UCLA's associate athletic director for compliance.

Now, instead of worrying about not having paper in a fax machine, schools will have to worry about hackers.

Just kidding.
