Houston Jack Yates High School safety Desmond Spivey has been patient through the recruiting process.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound senior was a three-year starter, a first-team all-district selection and had four interceptions last season, but went unsigned after signing day.

Spivey's college football dream came true this week as he verbally committed to the Air Force Academy after receiving an offer.
