Multiple outlets, including the Daily Press, are reporting that Virginia Tech has picked up a verbal commitment from Village Academy (Delray Beach, FL) defensive lineman Kevin Bronson.
“Kevin Bronson, a defensive end from Village Academy in Delray Beach, Fla., has committed to #Hokies for class of 2014,” tweeted Norm Wood of the Daily Press.
Bronson, who is listed on his Hudl.com profile as being 6’4″, 255 pounds, saw action at defensive end and defensive tackle during his senior season. From watching his highlights (click here to view his senior year highlights and more), Bronson appears to have the physical frame to potentially play end or tackle on the major college level.
Virginia Tech officially offered a scholarship to Bronson last month, during the week of January 20-24 to be exact. The Sunshine State standout took an official visit to Tech the weekend of January 24-26. In addition to Tech, Bronson also considered offers from Florida Atlantic, Nebraska, Rutgers, South Florida and Vanderbilt, among others. He made official visits to Rutgers, South Florida, Virginia Tech and Florida Atlantic.
The Hokies now have 27 players in total in the class of 2014. Four of those recruits enrolled last month and the other 23 are expected to sign letters of intent on Wednesday, February 5, which is National Signing Day. Tech is still vying for other recruits as well.
Bronson is rated a 3-star prospect by Rivals, 247Sports, Scout and ESPN.
