After originally committing to the University of Virginia for wrestling, the FOX 8 Friday Night Touchdown Player of the Year, Joey Baughman from Wadsworth High School has changed his mind and is now headed to Elon to play college football.

Four-star DE Andrew Chatfield (No. 159 in ESPN 300) from Plantation, Florida signs with the Gators.
