The 6-foot-4, 288-pound lineman from Mauldin, S.C., switched his commitment from East Carolina to Virginia Tech last month. He spent last year at Fork Union and hoped to enroll this semester to go through spring drills.
The Hokies are still awaiting word on another Fork Union attendee, four-star running back Drew Harris. The 6-foot-1, 210-pounder from Exton, Pa., signed with Virginia Tech last February but didn't qualify.
Fork Union coach John Shuman told Roger Gonzalez of The News Virginian that he expects Harris to qualify and enroll at Tech."
