02-07-2013 (HHS) - Hoover High School today celebrated 21 students signing athletic scholarships, including nine for Division 1 universities.

Devon Earl, who started as a safety for the Hoover Bucs the past three years, signed to play football with the University of South Alabama.

Geoffrey Bramblett, who just returned to Hoover after spending a year at another school where his father coached football, signed to play as a pitcher for the University of Alabama baseball team.

Earl said he made an official visit to South Alabama about two weeks ago and went to a couple of games there, and he fell in love with the university quickly.

"They showed me a lot of love, and I really like Mobile," Earl said. "Just going down there to visit - the water and just the breeze coming off the water, I feel like it's a great place to be. They're building a tradition with football and academics, and I want to be a part of that."
