Class of 2011 ATH Lonnie Ballentine (Memphis, Tenn./Southwind) is going to graduate from high school early and sign as part of the 2010 class on Monday, according to Southwind coach Cedric Miller.

Ballentine likely will sign with Tennessee, Memphis or Arkansas at 12:30 ET on Monday at Southwind High School. Alabama and LSU are also programs that had offers on the table for him in the 2011 class.

At one point, Ballentine was committed to Memphis before he backed out of his pledge to the Tigers and decided, albeit temporarily, to go through the 2011 recruiting cycle with his class.
