East Nashville Magnet School’s DeVarius Cortner signed a letter of intent to play college football at Western Carolina University Wednesday.
Cortner, who was recruited as a defensive back, recorded 40 tackles, four interceptions and five pass break-ups during his senior season at East Nashville. He was also the team’s starting quarterback.
“I’m very excited and relieved, and now I finally just get to enjoy it and get ready for college,” Cortner said.
“It felt very welcoming at (Western Carolina) and I love the people there.”
