King William (VA) defensive tackle Nick Acree, Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) wide receiver Justin Hunter, Brookville defensive end Zack McCray and Fork Union (VA) offensive lineman Mark Shuman headline what is shaping to be a terrific list of incoming visitors for tomorrow’s Spring Game. It will be an important weekend recruiting-wise for Tech, which so far has commitments from two of the top players in the state in Acree and Shuman.
The 6-4, 180-pound Hunter, considered one of the top wide receiver recruits in the country, is coming off of a successful visit to LSU last weekend. The Dolphins standout does not claim any favorites but has been high on Virginia Tech to this point, though the weekend is certainly important for the Hokies to impress. He’ll get to spend time this weekend with former teammates Marcus Davis and Randall Dunn, who signed with Tech in the 2008 class.
Accompanying Hunter will be John Godfrey, a 6-0 safety prospect. Virginia Tech is one of many, many Division 1A programs to offer Hunter. Godfrey is being evaluated by Tech, which invited him to tomorrow’s event.
Top defensive tackle prospect Nick Acree plans to bring 30 family members with him tomorrow. The 6-5, 300-pound prospect will also get a chance to meet future high school teammates Mark Shuman and Russell Bodine. Acree, who attends King William, will transfer to Fork Union Military Academy for his senior year. He will play under head coach Mickey Sullivan.
Shuman, a 6-7, 285-pound offensive tackle, verbally committed to Tech on Wednesday. Bodine, a 6-4, 285-pound center/offensive guard, recently added Virginia Tech to his growing list of Division 1A offers. He has been impressed with UNC and UVa to this point, though he is open and making what will be his first ever trip to Virginia Tech.
6-5, 235-pound Zack McCray will join former Brookville teammate Logan Thomas in Blacksburg tomorrow. McCray, a defensive end who is up to 13 Division 1A offers, has been to Virginia Tech numerous times and has a good feel for the program already. Virginia Tech is high on his list, which also includes LSU, Maryland, North Carolina, N.C. State and Tennessee, among others.
