Marlboro County (Bennettsville, S.C.) tight end/wide receiver prospect Tyrell Edwards is back on board with Virginia Tech, Edwards’ father, former Virginia Tech standout Bo Campbell, confirmed to TechSideline.com late last night.
Edwards, a 6-4, 220-pound senior, withdrew his original pledge to Virginia Tech earlier this month in order to explore other options – specifically, N.C. State. He was looking to make an official visit to Raleigh, something the N.C. State coaches said he couldn’t do unless he de-committed from Virginia Tech. But when Edwards de-committed, the N.C. State coaching staff did not follow through on its end and bring him in for an official.
Edwards rejoined Tech’s class yesterday. Though he will sign with Tech in February of 2009, he will enroll as a gray-shirt in January of 2010.
Stay tuned for more on Edwards’ decision in the coming days.
