Dalton Dennis, who won his second straight title, is going to Oklahoma, where he will join his older brother, Dillon.

Brian Travis and Zane May will wrestle for the University of Dubuque (Iowa). Travis was a state runnerup this past season. Anthony Melillo, a state champion, is attending Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas.

- Admiral Farragut Academy's Daniel Saloman signed to play basketball at Air Force.

Saloman, a 6-foot-8 forward, led AFA to the Class 2A region finals, where it lost to Tampa Prep. He was selected to play in the private school all-star game that featured seniors from Brevard, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas and Polk counties.

- Three players who were instrumental in East Lake winning its first district title in nine years have signed with colleges.
