Moments ago on ESPN Radio 94.1, Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, Virginia) 2015 standout defensive back and wide receiver Jahque Alleyne made a verbal commitment to Virginia Tech. The 6-1, 180 pound Alleyne is rated a 3-star prospect by the 247Sports Composite, and according to 247Sports holds offers from Virginia, Oregon, Louisville, and Kentucky among other schools.
Over the course of the 2013 season, Alleyne's first as a starter, he tallied 62 tackles and 7 interceptions. His speed, versatility, and ability to attack the football at its highest point pop off of film.
Ocean Lakes High School has been stocked with 757 talent throughout the years, but for a long while Tech hasn't been able to sign any of its players. Justin Hunter (WR, 2010), Lafonte Thourogood (QB/ATH, 2011), Eli Harold (DE, 2012), and Derrick Nnadi (DT, 2014) were all highly recruited prospects that had Virginia Tech offers, but opted to sign elsewhere. Two of Alleyne's teammates, Jahvoni Simmons (LB, UVa commit) and Jaason Lewis (ATH), are 4-star prospects in the 2015 cycle. Rising junior Levonta Taylor is pegged by both Rivals.com and 247Sports as Virginia top player for the 2016 cycle. Marcus Davis and Randall Dunn were the last Ocean Lakes prospects to sign with Virginia Tech (2008).
Alleyne is not only a great pickup for Virginia Tech today, but it could be a huge momentum shift for the Hokies attracting prospects from a school that has produced a slew of D-I players.
There's also this tweet by Alleyne from back in July.
