Cox (Virginia Beach, VA) 4-star defensive end Jordan Williams revealed his top five schools this afternoon. Through Twitter, the 6’5″, 250-pound rising senior wrote…

“This Recruiting Process Has Been A Huge Blessing To Be Apart Of. I’d Like To Thank God For Putting Me In The Situation I Am In. I Would Also Like To Thank All The Coaches That Have Recruited Me. But These Are The 5 Schools My Family And I Feel Are Best For Me In No Particular Order :”

Williams then listed Clemson, Tennessee, UVA, Ohio State and Virginia Tech.

Williams’ comments suggest that this may be a finalist list, although I’ll certainly confirm whether or not this is true as well as where he plans to go from here before making his college commitment. The 2015 first-team all-Tidewater selection claimed 31 scholarship offers in total, with Oregon coming through with no. 31 on May 20. Check out Williams’ junior season highlights below.

The Hokies recently made the top list for another big-time defensive end prospect, Episcopal (Alexandria, VA) rising senior Luiji Vilain. Vilain, a native of Ottawa, Canada, tweeted yesterday that he plans to announce his college choice on June 12. The finalists include Michigan, Southern Cal and Virginia Tech.

  1. I like that we are being included in these prospects as finalists, but we have to be able to close. If we start to get some of these guys, that will be a great start to the Coach Fu era.

  2. It sure would be great to get a few of these top players. We seem to come in second too many to many times Go Tech

    1. Good Post !!! The 2016 Class only shows one(1) four star and he is an injury project. The 2017
      listing of verbals also only show one(1) four star, to-date. It appears that the staff is going to have to do the job with the usual over achievers. Sound familiar ???

      1. I wouldn’t stress too much about that for 2 reasons… 1. It’s early. 2. Fuente went out of his way in his intro press conference to say he doesn’t focus on the number of stars a recruit has. He focuses more on his own scouting and whether or not a player will fit with what he wants to do. I think we’ve seen that enough with the WR recruits we have picked up and are going after. Several aren’t the freak athletes that most schools drool over but they are guys that would be perfect in a specific role (slot, H-back, etc…) in Fuente’s offense. I suspect some of those less heralded guys will turn out to be great players for VT in the near future. While I know the “coach em up” philosophy hasn’t worked out too great for VT in recent history, I think a big part of that problem is the prior staffs love for recruiting guys without a set position in mind.
