National Signing Day is actually a Early Signing Period for basketball.  Beginning Wednesday morning Class of 2019 players can sign National Letters of Intent (NLI’s) to their college of choice. Typically only the top 20 players in the state have the option of signing early.  

Below you can see the seniors confirmed to be signing.  While none of these are unexpected after they already verbally committed the confirmation indicates the verbal commitment is hours away from becoming a formal document binding the player and school.

Drew Pember (Tennessee) of Bearden will sign November 14th at 7:45 A.M. Eastern Standard Time.

KJ Johnson (Marshall County) verbally committed to Lipscomb University after July. He will sign Friday.

Carson Cary (Lipscomb) of Columbia Academy will sign Friday.  Both Cary and KJ Johnson played AAU on EAB 17u.  “My birthday is Friday so i’m having a ceremony then.”   Friday 1:30 PM C.S.T.

CJ Gettelfinger (Oakland) of Grace Chrsitian Academy will sign November 14th. Oakland University is a LM in Michigan.

Grant Ledford (Chattanooga) of Grace Christian is signing November 14th.

Mark Freeman (Tennessee State) graduated from Southwind High School.  Instead of attending LIU-Brooklyn Freeman elected to attend post-grad Skills Factory.  A year later Freeman will sign with Tennessee State University.

Antavion Collum (Ole Miss) signs to Ole Miss Thursday.  Collum begins his senior year with Bartlett High this week.

Jalen Cincore (Georgia Southern) signs Friday 10:20 A.M at Bartlett High School.

Will Sign This Week-Day Uncertain

Antonio Thomas (Bradley) is verbally commited to Bradley University in Illinois.  He has NOT confirmed with @PrepHoopsTN that he will sign, but that is merely a failure on our end to connect with Antonio just yet.
