Houston area athletes make their commitments on National Signing Day

HOUSTON – The Houston area is loaded with talent and National Signing Day began at 8 a.m. Wednesday in Texas City where twin brothers Armanti and D'Onta Foreman stuck with their early commitment and signed with the Texas Longhorns.

Armanti is a 4-star wide receiver.

"I love Mack Brown, really do and still do, but changes happen in college football and I believe Coach Strong is great and I can't wait to play ball," said Armanti.

It was a full house at HISD's signing day Wednesday afternoon. Westside star receiver Frank Iheanacho followed up and signed with Texas A&M, while Lamar had a big crop including defensive back John Bonney who signed with the Texas Longhorns and new coach Charlie Strong.

"It's about academics and I wanted to go to a school that will help me 40 years from now and Texas is the place for me. I am ready to get this program back to where Texas always was," Bonney told KPRC Local 2 Sports.

At Humble ISD's signing day, Summer Creek QB Aaron Sharp, once a Kansas State commit, instead had a change of heart and signed with UCLA.

"This is a great day, something I've been waiting on since I was a kid. It's a dream come true," Sharp said.

Fort Bend ISD had a major haul that totaled 49 players; 14 to FBS programs. Travis defensive back Nick Harvey signed with Texas A&M.

At Pearland Dawson, congrats to their group which was highlighted by wide receiver Tony Upchurch, who signed with LSU.

At Manvel, Mavericks star offensive lineman Koda Martin signed with Texas A&M.
