They were two of the most sought after high school football recruits in East Texas, and today, Tatum's Lennon Creer and Darnius Moore ended the suspense early, announcing who they planned to sign with.
"It came down to where I'm most comfortable at," said Creer as he pulled out a baseball cap from under the table and put in on, "and in the fall, I will be attending the University of Tennessee."
"It came down to Oklahoma and Tennessee," Moore said, "and the family environment and everything, and I'll also be attending the Unversity of Tennessee."
Creer and Moore played intregral parts in the Eagles back-to-back state championships the past two seasons. Oklahoma, Alabama and Florida were also being strongly considered. Signing day is next Wednesday.
