Cody Carr, Deontre Nealous and Caleb Hopkins signed football scholarships with Cumberland University Friday. 

The three will join teammate Braiden Eady who signed with Cumberland last week. 

Carr was excited that the Cumberland team has several former Bears on the roster. 

“I get another chance to play football with my friends,” said Carr. 

Carr said that he is expecting Cumberland to help him keep getting better and prepare him for the next level. 

Hopkins liked that Cumberland was close to home, and feels that Mt. Juliet helped him improve not only on the field, but off. 

“I became a better man,” said Hopkins about his years playing for the Bears. 

Nealous said he was excited about playing with his teammates again, and only had one expectation of his time at Cumberland. 

“Success,” said Nealous.
