Ahlante Askew, Curtis Fair and Cam Johnson announced their commitments to play college sports during a ceremony at Republic High School April 12.
Askew, the all-time leader in steals and assists for Republic basketball, will attend John Brown University. "I think I'll get to go down there and get a lot of minutes and get better as a player," Askew said. "And I'm excited to get my education paid for. It's really awesome."
Fair only played competitive volleyball for the first time a year-and-a-half ago, and now he's the first athlete from Republic to attend college to play men's volleyball. He'll attend the University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy. "I chose it because I like the campus...and the coaches were super friendly. I bonded with them in the short amount of time that I was able to be with them," Fair said. "It's a super good school, I'm going to get to continue my education and it's the … right path for me because it's the field of study I want to go into."
Cam Johnson will be continuing his football-playing days at Evangel University. "I really like the college. It's close to home, so I'm still close to my family. They're also a Christian college, and I'm a strong Christian, so I'll be able to support those morals as I play football," Johnson said.
