Pearl-Cohn, which advanced to the Class 3A quarterfinals after a 5-5 regular season, sent eight players on to college football Wednesday, the first day of the 2012 national signing period.
Bethel University landed linebacker/running back Larry Brown and tight end/defensive end Jordan Payne, and two others — linebacker/fullback Travon Myles and wide receiver/safety André McDonald — signed with Highland Junior College.
Lineman Elijah Annor chose Austin Peay and wide receiver/defensive back Demario Donnell picked Tennessee Tech, which meant they will compete against one another in the Ohio Valley Conference.
Lineman Carl Jones Jr. (North Carolina Central) and kicker Ryan Deising (Jackson State) completed the group of signees.
All eight made their choices official during a ceremony at the school, which also included East Literature wide receiver/defensive back Ronald Slayton-Williams (Fayetteville State).
