Union Defensive Back Daylon Figures took advantage of Early Signing Day and signed with Missouri State on Wednesday, capping a meteoric rise from role player to a key contributor in his senior season.
After signing, Figures was excited to continue his athletic and scholastic development. “I feel like I can make the program better. I’m going to go up there and show my talents to all of the world, ESPN, everybody.”
Union Head Coach Kirk Fridrich was impressed by Daylon’s progress over his high school career.
“Daylon is a senior for us that has just been an outstanding young man that has been a role player until this year and wound up playing defensive back for us as a corner and made some outstanding plays. I’m very proud of Daylon and I’m looking forward to see what he does at Missouri State.”
