Virginia Tech secured its third verbal commitment of the weekend on Sunday. Defensive tackle Cam Goode opted for the Hokies over Rutgers, Virginia, Pittsburgh, and Michigan State among other Power Five programs.
"Thanking God for all his glory, all these amazing blessings, and the situation that I have been put in," Goode shared via Twitter. "I couldn't do it without my parents, siblings, loved ones, and friends. Would like to thank my coaches dearly for putting me in this position to succeed as a Student-Athlete at St. John's. Extremely thankful beyond measure for all the coaches who have recruited me throughout this long process. It's time for me to make a decision as I enter into my senior year. With that being said; I am excited to announce that I am Fully Committed To Virginia Tech."
The 6-0, 322 pound St. John's College HS (Washington, DC) product was offered by the Hokies while on an unofficial visit to Wake Forest. (But seriously do yourself a favor and read about the zany game of phone tag Goode, Justin Fuente, and Charley Wiles played back in February.)
The 247Sports Composite rates Goode as a 3-star prospect.
"They just see me as a defensive specimen," Goode told The Key Play in March. "I'm 322 (pounds), and somebody that can move sideline-to-sideline. And they just keep calling me twitchy in texts, and I'm, like, oh man, if they're calling me twitchy, that means I can move fast and I feel like I can most definitely be a dynamic player for their team and their type of defense and they always bring that up to me."
