Local football players sign with Va. colleges on National Signing Day


PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Those who didn’t take advantage of the early signing day in December, took advantage on Wednesday to sign their National Letter of Intent. 

Ocean Lakes’ Tayvion Land signed with Liberty after things apparently didn’t go as planned with Maryland. 

Norfolk State coach Latrell Scott signed Indian River quarterback Dominique Brooks.

Coach Scott thinks he’s one of the best athletes in Hampton Roads — he’ll probably start playing on the Spartans’ defense.

Lake Taylor defensive back Javon Harvey finally signed with Old Dominion. He’s a good team player, a good athlete, and may end up being a huge asset for head coach Bobby Wilder and the Monarchs.  

William and Mary’s new coach, Mike London, put the finishing touches on his first recruiting class, signing 10 players, including wide receiver Latrelle Smith from Phoebus and former Virginia Tech defensive tackle Darius Fullwood.

And James Madison’s new coach, Curt Cignetti, snagged Norcom linebacker Taurus Jones the Region A defensive player of the year this past season.

Jones had a plethora of offers including Old Dominion, Richmond and Army, but JMU will be the new home for Jones.
