Tyler, Tx (KLTV) -  Make it 160.

In the time that Rev. Jerome Milton has spent at T.K. Gorman High, he has seen 157 students sign to play college athletics.

Now you can add three more.

Today, Tim Langas signed on to play baseball at Brookhaven College in Dallas.

Alex VanderVorste is headed to the midwest, he will play baseball at Saint Louis University.

And Justin Harris is headed to West Point, the Gorman senior will join the track team at the United States Military Academy.

"I wanted to go there and become an officer in the Army, and to serve this country," said Harris,  "I have always loved the athletics and the opportunity to join the track and field program, it is just perfect."

"It has everything that I need in a university," said VanderVorste of SLU, "I want to be a doctor someday and it has an incredible medical program, to do after baseball and after school, I really could not ask for more."

"I don't even really have the words for it, it is going to be a great experience," said Langas, about heading to play baseball at Brookhaven, "I am going to do what I can with it, and hopefully head to the next level, to a Division One school after junior college."
