Exeter have offered professional contracts to young trio Tom Nichols, Jake Gosling and Roger Ingham.
Striker Nichols, midfielder Gosling and the verstaile Ingham will join up with Paul Tisdale's squad in July ahead of the 2011/12 campaign.
Tisdale said: "It was great day for Tom, Roger and Jake."
He added: "Now we move forward to another set of young players who are all different, but who all have a chance to bring their talents into the first-team squad.
"Although we offered contracts to three players for next year, we told others they've not been offered so it's a real mixed bag of emotions.
"It was one of those difficult days as a manager on Monday when you have to speak to the players finishing their scholarships and their parents."
