Even though Signing Day was Wednesday, Virginia Tech added a piece to their Class of 2017 on Friday with a commitment from Zion DeBose.
DeBose, a 3-star defensive end from Spencer, NC., made an official visit to Virginia Tech last weekend. The 6-foot-2, 226-pound recruit chose Virginia Tech over Pittsburgh, Illinois and Missouri. In all, DeBose had 11 Power 5 offers.
Virginia Tech wanted to add depth on the defensive line and they have done so with the Class of 2017. DeBose joins defensive ends Nathan Proctor and Tyjuan Garbutt, as well as defensive tackles Robert Porcher IV and JBril Glaze.
Even though Proctor and Garbutt are 4-star prospects, DeBose could be the best one of the three when it’s all said and done. DeBose flew under the radar for much of his recruitment until his senior season. Here are his highlights.
