Banneker (College Park, GA) standout Olufemi Ajiboye , who had verbally committed to South Carolina before making an official visit to Virginia Tech last weekend, has switched his decision and is now a verbal commitment to the Hokies. A 6-2, 290-pound defensive tackle, he is an excellent addition especially after former Tech verbal Budd Thacker committed to Florida State.
Ajiboye’s decision was first reported by Phil Kornblut of Palmetto Sports.
A 4-star prospect as rated by Rivals.com, Ajiboye made 80 total tackles including 60 solo efforts and 20 tackles-for-loss from the defensive tackle position in his senior year. He also made 4 1/2 sacks.
Ajiboye joins Mario Edwards as players from the state of Georgia to commit to the Hokies. Coincidentally, the two faced off in the first round of the playoffs this past season.
