ST. PETERSBURG – Lakewood’s highest recruited player, OL Isaiah Wynn, was absent from Wednesday’s signing day ceremony in the school’s auditorium, but three other Spartans did sign. Wynn was in Texas as a member of Team USA and faxed his letter of intent to Georgia in the morning.
Receiver Darquez Watson signed with Presbyterian College in Clinton, S.C. Safety Brujoun Bonner signed with Memphis, and wide receiver Andrew Davis signed with Toledo. Lakewood coach Cory Moore said there were several other players who opted not to sign on Wednesday, including Donterio Fowler, Jocqui Ellison, James Swain and Patric Jones.
"They all have visits planned either this week or next week,’’ Moore said. “We could have as many as 11 more players sign somewhere. They just wanted to hold off today."
Moore also said Penn State made a late run at Wynn, who seriously thought about the Nittany Lions before sticking with Georgia.
All three Spartans who signed Wednesday said they have no doubt about their decisions.
“I knew I was going to Memphis probably midway through the season," said Bonner, who also considered New Mexico and Akron. “I think I can contribute right away out there."
