Local Athletes Make Big Commitments On Signing Day

Several East Texas athletes made college committments on Wednesday, the first day to sign a national-letter-of-intent.

John Tyler Lady Lion Brittany Gilliam signed to play her college basketball at SMU. Gilliam is a returning all-district wing, and also ranked eleventh in her class academically.

Gladewater pitcher Hunter Harris committed today to the University of Texas. Harris was all-state last year, and went 11-0 for the Bears last season.

At Tyler Junior College, four athletes made four-year school committments. Hawkins' Ben Pemberton signed with Pacific University. Ed Moore of T. K. Gorman sined with Gardner Webb in North Carolina. Kurt Looby made his committment to Washington State, and Antonio Chavers signed with Iowa.
