FOREST, Va. (WSET) - 4 Jefferson Forest athletes commit to colleges on Wednesday morning.

Golf's Nick Willis signs with Olivet Nazarene in Illinois, Savannah Shupe - track at VMI. Liberty gets two signees - Morgan Learn for Women's Lacrosse, and Isaac Simmons for golf.

Afterwards, we asked each about their decisions, and what they are looking forward to.

Nick Willis: "I had heard about Olivet through my parents, and stuff. My dad is a Nazarene pastor. That's where I wanted to be. That's where God was calling me to be."

Savannah Shupe: "The team bonding and the comraderie there was a really big thing for me. I just felt really connected with the girls on the team and VMI, as a whole."

Issac Simmons: "Coach Manley has done a great job, I couldn't ask for a better coach. Put me in a lot of pressure situations, even in practice."

Morgan Learn: "I think it's wearing that Flames jersey, and taking that first step out onto that lacrosse field. I can't wait for that moment."
