National Signing Day is Christmas for recruit757

We’re at the end of a long day for recruit757 and there are still plenty of stories to tell.
We started the day off at Ocean Lakes, hit Cox, Lake Taylor, Woodrow Wilson, Landstown, Bishop Sullivan, Oscar Smith and Indian River.
There were still other stops that we couldn’t get to, so congratulations to the athletes at Warhill, Bethel, Maury, Princess Anne, Deep Creek, King’s Fork and the other schools we missed today!
The biggest surprise of the day may have been at Ocean Lakes. Cornerback Tayvion “Tank” Land was committed to Maryland for the long haul, but the Terps got cold feet just in the last couple of weeks. That allowed other schools to jump in and Liberty University won the Tank Land sweepstakes. It was the experienced pitch work of former Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze that landed Land for the Flames.
Ocean Lakes saw four football athletes sign today.
At Cox High School, seven football players signed their NLI, including Tayvion Robinson, who is headed to Virginia Tech. Today’s signing was ceremonial for Robinson. He inked with the Hokies back in December.
Lake Taylor saw Javon Harvey’s on again/off again relationship with the Old Dominion Monarchs turn on again as Harvey signed with ODU.
A pair of athletes at Woodrow Wilson will stay close to home as they’ve signed with the Newport News Apprentice School.
Landstown saw six football players sign today, including a late commitment from Jalen Jennings, who signed with Division II Virginia State of the CIAA.
Bishop Sullivan had Noah Anderson ink with LIU-Post on Long Island, New York. Andre Hawkins landed several offers at the recruit757 Uncommitted Senior Showcase and chose Alderson Broaddus.
Oscar Smith had quite a few athletes sign today, and Indian River closed out today’s coverage as we jetted across the region to celebrate with as many athletes as possible.
We’ll have more video and stories from signing day as we prep them and get them to you.
