Sometimes its a busy day for Fort Valley State, and sometimes its a waiting game.
This time, National Signing Day is the latter for the Wildcats and head coach Donald Pittman.
Through dinnertime, FVSU had received national letters-of-intent from five players.
We hope to sign about 18, Pittman said. Its different every year.
The early class has three players from Carver-Columbus: lineman Cordarius Smith, cornerback Tailik Quarterman and wideout Dreilon Freeman.
Smith was a second-team offensive lineman on the All-Bi-City team for the Columbus area, and Freeman a second-team all-state selection.
Quarterman has drawn some major-college attention.
FVSU has also added safety Jaquan Swain of Jackson-Atlanta and cornerback Tyler Miles of Lovejoy, by way of Rochester Community College.
Pittman expects a flurry of paperwork the rest of the week.
Were confident that most of them will be coming, he said. You always can lose some in the mix, but were confident were going to get most of them.
