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 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.

  1. This class has the feel of a brand new era with loads of talent at Virginia Tech. I am excited about the future. Could this be by far the most Florida recruits we have ever gotten if a few more commit between now and signing day?

  2. dang he’s fast! Not only that, he just does the job and gets ready for the next play. No showboating. Nice get!

  3. A position of Need, Mr.Bronson filled the Slot! Now if VT can get the last two Florida Recruits , they will have one heck of a class.

  4. Folks, looks like we have another Maddy…an overlooked 4+ star player. You can’t teach the type of quicks this kid has. He is going to be a very disruptive player.

    1. Very good indeed. I would say it has produced no busts. Instead we get better than what they are rated…by far. Looking at Bronson’s offer list. Ridiculous. He should have more but I prefer this setup….every time!

      1. Agree with both comments here, interesting observation, not only no busts, but quite the opposite, pleasant upside surprises. I’ll shut up before I jinx things.

  5. Welcome to the Hokie Nation! I LOVE his timing and his swim move. Can see him playing both positions. Could help us out on the outside early on and then move inside as he gets Gentricized! He’s quick AND fast. I love this pick up!

    1. Couldn’t agree with you more. I don’t always get to excited watching high school high light films but this kid is a player.
