Virginia Tech’s first big recruiting event for the 2013 class produced commitments from two standout in-state prospects, Clover Hill (Midlothian, VA) linebacker Holland Fisher and Henrico (VA) cornerback Cequan Jefferson . This news has been reported by multiple media outlets.
Fisher, a 6’2″, 200-pound junior, chose Tech over a handful of other major FBS programs, including Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee, UVa and West Virginia. He is one of the top linebacker prospects in the state’s class of 2013, and he comes from the same school that produced Tech 2012 signee Joel Caleb and former Tech offensive tackle Blake DeChristopher.
The 5’10”, 170-pound Jefferson is a player Henrico head coach Roger Brookes describes as a “lockdown corner. He’s a really great defensive player. “I think he prefers defense to offense. He likes scoring touchdowns, but he is a really physical kid. He had six interceptions his sophomore year. He had two interceptions this past year. He didn’t have as many because people didn’t throw his way.”
On offense, Jefferson, who has run the 40 in 4.39 seconds, averaged over 24 yards per catch and scored six touchdowns for the Warriors last season.
Fisher and Jefferson are Virginia Tech’s first two commitments of the 2013 class. Stay tuned to TSL for more on these two and other updates from yesterday’s junior day.
