For the second straight year, Countryside held its signing day ceremony without its biggest recruit.
Cougars quarterback Gray Crow, who committed to Miami nearly a year ago, graduated from Countryside and has already enrolled in classes in Coral Gables. The same thing happened last year with offensive lineman Tyler Moore, who was already enrolled at Nebraska by the time signing day rolled around.
Still, Countryside had four who signed on Wednesday: defensive back Cody Chmelik (Quincy University), receiver Nico Morgado (Stetson), running back Diomi Roberts (Highland Community College) and linebacker Adam Vinson (Stetson).
All four who were present on signing day made their college commitments within the past week. Chmelik will join his older brother Jimbo, who is a quarterback at Quincy. Roberts will join Tarpon Springs running back Kenny Blanch at Highlands. And Morgado and Vinson join a new program in Stetson that has recruited heavily in the bay area.
