People in the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry will hear some familiar names next Saturday as several players signed their letter of intent on Wednesday.

Early National Signing Day kickoff Wednesday morning at Hilton Head Island High School when Chris Marable made his commitment to Wake Forest official. The six-foot-three, 280-pound defensive lineman proved to be a tough match-up for anyone after finishing the 2022 season with 25 tackles for a loss.

Another big-time defensive player, Troy Ford Jr. from Calvary Day, decided to continue his career at the University of Central Florida. Ford recorded more than 250 tackles during his career as a Cavalier.

Tavion Gadson, a defensive lineman for Jenkins, surprised many when he decided to de-commit from Florida State. Gadson explained he needs two shoulder surgeries, and FSU wanted to grey-shirt him. A grey shirt would ultimately postpone Gadson’s enrollment. Therefore, he reconsidered his options and decided Kentucky would be the best fit for him.

Ty Adams, a quarterback for Swainsboro, committed to the University of North Carolina. Adams’s standout performance happened during his last game with the Tigers, in the state championship. Adams rushed for four touchdowns and 259 yards on 16 carriers.

Pauly Seeley, a quarterback for New Hampstead, signed his letter of intent to play football for Wofford. Seeley threw for 2,517 yards and 29 touchdowns in his senior season with the Phoenix.


Georgia Southern welcomes 19 new Eagles to the nest. Of the 19 signees, 16 of them are high school athletes, and the other three will come from junior colleges. Clay Helton, Georgia Southern’s head coach, expressed his satisfaction with this year’s recruiting class, especially with his incoming linemen.

“When you look across this class, you see big men,” Helton said. “Big men win championships, and that’s one of the areas of growth that we needed. Ten of the 19 young men are on that offensive and defensive front. “
