Quincey McDonald, Keilan Rooks Austin Thomas and Dylan Yates have all given their word and are expected to sign on the dotted line today (Feb. 1).
The quartet of Dresden High School football team players have selected their college suitors after an exhausting recruiting process for the three members of the Class A state champion team.
In addition, one DHS football star (quarterback Dresser Winn) gave a verbal commitment to Western Michigan University before decommitting and eventually choosing a new suitor in UT Martin (see related story).
McDonald was the first to give a verbal commitment among the local players, selecting Bethel University in McKenzie on Jan. 24.
Meanwhile, Winn and Thomas each made their decisions known on Jan. 25 with the former selecting Western Michigan University and the latter choosing Murray State University.
Winn changed his mind on Friday, though, and put his name back on the market among available college recruits, but verbally committed to UT Martin after a campus visit over the weekend and just before the newspaper’s press time..
Yates made his commitment early Monday afternoon, tweeting his selection of the UT Martin football team as his suitor.
Rooks’ decision was announced late Monday afternoon.
