In addition to four Garden City High School football players (see related story) signing letters-of-intent on Wednesday's first day of the national signing period, several area football players, including members of the 2013 Telegram All-Area team, put their signatures on letters to play at the collegiate level.

Chase Rudzik of Ulysses, a second-team All-Area pick, is headed to Pittsburg State where he will join Garden City's Greyson Tempel to play for the Gorillas. Also signing with the Gorillas is Sublette lineman Travis Webb (6-2, 260).

In addition to Rudzik, the Tigers had two players ink letters to attend Garden City Community College — AJ Erives, an offensive lineman, and Jorge Mendez, a placekicker.

Lakin's Gage McAtee, another first-team All-Area choice, is headed to Hutchinson Community College, where he will join Garden City's Montana Fuller and Hunter Delgado. Hugoton's Mitchell Persinger of Hugoton has signed with Kansas Wesleyan University in Salina while Stanton County quarterback/defensive back Jacob Cron signed with Friends University in Wichita. Ty Clark of Cimarron signed with Dodge City Community College.

Two other members of The Telegram's Top 11 have not decided for next year.

Holcomb's Heath Tucker is still weighing options for basketball or football while Scott City's Warren Kropp said Saturday that he was likely headed to Colby just to attend college.
