Over the last few years, oversigning has become a hot topic in the world of college football recruiting. Well, there's one recruit who may have starting a whole new trend in the recruiting world.

Over-committing.

Dacorius "D.J." Law apparently signed letters of intent for three different schools this year.

Both Ole Miss and Utah claim they received a letter of intent from Law, who apparently also signed with East Mississippi Community College. According to the Clarion Ledger, Ole Miss announced Law's signing at 8:23 a.m.. Meanwhile, at Utah, the school didn't announce Law's signing until 3:36 p.m., though a school spokesperson told the paper she believed the school received the letter of intent earlier in the day.

The time is important too, as whatever conference validated and recorded the NLI first would have the valid one.

And, in case this wasn't strange enough, there's video of Law putting on a Utah hat during his signing ceremony on Wednesday. So there's a chance Law chose Utah but faxed his letter to Ole Miss first and could end up at Ole Miss even if he wanted to go to Utah.

How will it all end? I have no idea. Law will probably end up playing volleyball at some Big Ten school.
