JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – National signing day is always one of the best times of the year. Kids who've worked so hard make what might be one of the biggest decisions of their young lives. We were at nine schools this morning, including Jackson High School were they held their first signing day in the last seven years.

Jordan Roscoe Simmons is a guard on the Tigers basketball team. He decided that he will spend the next four years at the College of Saint Elizabeth in Morristown, New Jersey. That school has traditionally been all girls but will be co-ed starting next year. This gives Simmons a chance to make his mark on a new program. Simmons is also the definition of a student athlete. Not only does he excel on the court, he's also ranked number one in his class academically at Jackson High School.
