It’s early in the spring signing period, but already we have seen a lot of action in college recruitment so far in the Bi-City area.

There have been a couple of big football commitments and already a handful of signing ceremonies with more on the way.

Here’s a look at what’s gone on over the past couple of weeks.

Spencer High

Greenwave basketball star Sean Buffen signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Georgia Perimeter College on Tuesday. Buffen, who averaged 29 points for Spencer this season, was second in All Bi-City player of the year voting.

Also at Spencer, cross country runner Chris Arredondo signed with Gordon State College on Monday. He has run with the Greenwave for the past four years, during which he was all-region during his junior and senior seasons.

Arredondo was a team captain during his junior year, helping lead his team to be runners-up in Region 5-AA. As a senior, he again was captain, this time of a region champion.

Hardaway High

Hardaway baseball players Brandon Bynam, Cedric Brown and Sheridan Coy all signed letters of intent to play at Brewton Parker College on Wednesday.

The three have helped lead Hardaway to an 8-2 region record, tied in the loss column with Harris County and Northside.

Harris County High

Yasmine Carter and Keonna Harris both signed basketball scholarships with West Georgia Technical College on Thursday at Harris County.

Glenwood School

The Gators’ Zack Kelley signed to play at Bethel on Thursday. Kelley, a linebacker for Glenwood, totaled 63 tackles (nine for loss) and two sacks last season.

Quarterback Brandon Daley will sign on Tuesday to play at Maryville College in Tennessee. Daley was 71 of 140 for 1,710 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2012.

The biggest signee will by Alryk Perry, who will sign to play at Syracuse University on Monday. Perry totaled 39 tackles and six sacks in 2012.

Brown is expected to be one of the top prospects in the country when he leaves Carver.
