All across the state, high school football players signed letters of intent on Wednesday to solidify their college football plans.

Six Colquitt County Packers put their college plans in ink. Defensive lineman Jamiyus Pittman changed commitments from Ole Miss to UCF in early January, and finalized that commitment on Wednesday morning. Running back Tim Sanders is staying close to home at Valdosta State. Mike Parrish has decided to attend Georgia Military and C.J. Johnson will join the program at South Alabama. Packer teammates Todd Boyd and Gabriel Mobley will suit up at Georgia State.

In Lee County, three Trojans took part in a signing day ceremony, but only two were in attendance. Offensive lineman Jesse Freeman signed on the dotted line at Louisiana-Lafayette, and defensive back Quan Jamison is heading north to Buffalo. Quarterback Stephen Collier was not in attendance. He began classes at Ohio State in January.

Tift County long snapper Ike Powell was excited to be a Vanderbilt Commodore before James Franklin left for Penn State. After Franklin's departure, he switched to Auburn and inked his letter on Wednesday. Head coach John Reid said several other Blue Devils should be signing in the coming weeks.

At Pelham High School, six players signed letters to continue their football careers. Lorenzo Chuch and Terrell Burton will head to Dakota College, while Gregory Florence and Quenterrius Jasper signed on at Merced College in California. Speedy running back Christian Drake is headed to a four-year school in Army, and Trevon White will transition from a wide receiver to a defensive end at The Citadel.
