Spiro's K.J. Booze, Tyh Hawkins and Jordan Scott signed letters of intent Wednesday morning at the Spiro Gym.
Booze signed with Dartmouth College of the Ivy League in Hanover, N.H. However, official acceptance into the famed collegiate institution does become official for any Ivy League school until April. But football players can still sign their letters of intent in February.
