High school footballer announces college choice by jumping out of a plane

Signing day is typically insane but this is possibly the craziest announcement in its history

National Signing Day is getting weirder by the year. The day, as you can tell from the name, which happens on the first Wednesday of February, is the first day a high school student can sign a letter of intent from a college as per the rules of the NCAA. 

Some students tend to make announcements in the old school manner but simply telling ESPN or their close friends and family. 

Deontay Anderson has no time for such normality. Anderson is a four-star recruit from Manvel, Texas and has decided to announce where he is going to attend college by jumping out a plane.
