Reportedly, Virginia Tech has added another verbal commitment in the 2009 football recruiting class. According to the Roanoke Times, Hampton star Tyrel Wilson, a 6-3, 215-pound recruit, has pledged to the Hokies over Tennessee and UVa, among others.
A VHSCA first-team all-state selection at defensive end last season as a junior, Wilson has played linebacker for the Crabbers this season and likely will end up at linebacker at Virginia Tech as well.
Wilson is the 14th player to commit to Tech’s 2009 recruiting class. Stay tuned, as TechSideline.com will continue to follow up for more on Wilson’s decision.
