TYLER - The TJC men's basketball team has produced some great players through the year. And that trend continues with the 2017-2018 team.

On Wednesday, 4 members of that team signed with Division 1 colleges.

Isaiah Fontaine - UT Rio Grande Valley

TiAndre Jackson - UT Arlington

Trenton Sandifer - Incarnate Word

Desmond Balentine - Incarnate Word

They all say getting this signing done before the season gets started is a big relief. And they're happy to do it side by side with their teammates and friends.

Balentine says, "It means a lot to be able to share this moment with them and be part of it with them."

Jackson adds, "It is special because they're like my brothers, so knowing that they're going somewhere great, it gives me joy as well."
