(WTVM) - A pair of signings at Glenwood School Tuesday morning, and one of them is moving on to play division one hoops.

Trip Day signed on the dotted line to play at North Florida Tuesday morning.

He hopes to continue the momentum from his senior season where he averaged 18 points and 10 rebounds per game.
Day has a laundry list of accomplishments. He's been state tournament MVP, scored 1,800 total points, spent 5 years on varsity, and was an A-I-S-A player of the year finalist.

Day said it was North Florida's team values that sealed the deal.

"The coaches are great," Day said. " Coach came and saw me, I knew off the bat he was a genuine guy."

He said they had Christian values, and he knew right away. Trip said he committed to the Ospreys the next day after they offered him.

Fellow Gator Chase Dennis signed his letter of intent to play baseball at Georgia Southwestern in Americus.

He's not far from home and he'll play plenty of games in Columbus against CSU.

Location was the big factor in his decision, and his parents can still watch him play ball in college.

"It's going to be relieving knowing that they'll still be there where it kind of feels like still being in high school where I still get the home feeling about them still being able to watch me and watch me play and perform," Dennis said.

Dennis holds the single-season record for games played and runs scored. He is a career .400  hitter, a 2-time all-state selection, an AISA All-Star and a two-time State Champion.
