List of college signatures, commitments

Milford football star signs with Duke

Milford defensive end Desmond Aladuge signs national letter of intent to play college football with Duke.

Brad Myers, Delaware News Journal

Sometimes it takes a little longer.

Many factors can go into a college decision, and it can be even more complicated for athletes. So while some commit years in advance and sign at the earliest possible date, others may opt for a different schedule.

That’s why, for the second time, we’re updating our list of Delaware High School athletes who have signed or committed to a national memorandum of understanding to pursue their athletic careers in college.

Our latest list includes more than 50 signings and signings. They will compete in a variety of sports at colleges and universities from coast to coast.

However, we know that it is incomplete.

Many more seniors — and younger — have already signed or announced commitments, so many it’s hard to keep up with everyone. And more could follow before the school year ends.

We’re undoubtedly still missing a few, so please email additions and corrections to [email protected] or tweet them to @BradMyersTNJ.

We plan to update again in early summer. We’re excited to see how much this sport-by-sport list grows as Delaware’s top high school athletes continue to make their college choices.
