The group is led by linebacker Danny Verdun, who will be attending the University of Georgia next year.
"It feels good," he said. "I'm real excited and I'm going to work real hard."
Other signees include linebacker Demarco McNair who will be attending Middle Tennessee State, and linebacker Dexter Crawford who will be attending Clark College.
"I feel good and bad for leaving my fellow teammates," said Crawford. "I thank God for giving me my talent and strength."
Both offensive linemen Brian Brinson and Montrell Neal, and defensive lineman Jasper Brinkley all committed to play at Georgia Military College.
"This is what we dreamed of," said Brinkley. "This is just a great accomplishment."
