It’s been a good couple weeks for Virginia Tech recruiting, and it got better on Thursday as DJ Crossen committed to the Hokies.

Crossen, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound defensive back from Greensboro, N.C., is rated as a 3-star recruit by Rivals. The versatile defender narrowed down to his top-two schools last week, and chose Virginia Tech over North Carolina. Crossen was originally committed to the Tar Heels, but reopened his recruitment in January 2017.

Virginia Tech has always been in good position with Crossen. His former teammate at Dudley High School, Hendon Hooker, signed with the Hokies in the Class of 2017. His friend Tre Turner, also from Greensboro, committed to Virginia Tech on May 31.

The Hokies now have 10 commitments in the Class of 2018, three of which have come in the last two weeks. Crossen is the fourth defensive back to commit, joining Braxton Clark, Nasir Peoples and Chamarri Conner. Virginia Tech will likely take two or three more defensive backs in this cycle, but spots are beginning to fill up quickly as the target board widens.

  1. Welcome! Mr. Crossen.

    this would be a decision you won’t regret : in the now, near future, and professional future.
    We are Virginia Tech! and we’re glad you and your Greensboro friends are us. please bring along Dax and a few more of your best — ***, ****, and ***** — friends.

    Go Hokies!

  2. Predictions about a meaningful influx of recruits from NC and FL are already coming true. Think that trend only continues w Fuente and staff in place. I like it. By all means, I want great players from VA too. But football talent per square mile just seems to be much higher in the Deep South. I wouldn’t mind having one of our guys find a diamond in the rough in Texas also. Yeah, it’s incredibly heavily recruited but some guys there still get overlooked.

  3. Excellent!!! Welcome DJ…You’ll love being a Hokies and we are happy to have you in the family!!
