Blacksburg High School running back Coleton Beck has garnered a lot of attention among Group of 5 schools and Power 5 programs this spring and summer, but Beck never received an offer from the Hokies. That is, until Saturday.
Late Saturday night, the speedy tailback reported that Virginia Tech pulled the trigger and offered him a scholarship.
