My company had a sales compensation plan with an acknowledgment signature and date that I was to sign and send back into Human resources. The comp plan has a Non-Solicitation clause for 1-year in the plan. Since I never signed nor acknowledged, am I bound to the terms since I have now left the company?

Arguably you are not bound by the non-solicitation clause. However, arguably you impliedly consented to the non-solicitation clause depending on how long you worked at this company. Unfortunately, I think your situation is not black and white.
