Virginia Tech picked up a surprise commitment on Friday afternoon when 2021 linebacker Aaron Willis announced his decision to play football for the Hokies.

Willis is listed as an outside linebacker, and he plays for St. Frances Academy in Baltimore, which is where current Hokie wide receiver Damon Hazelton played for his first three seasons of high school. Only a sophomore, Willis already has offers from Florida, Michigan, Nebraska, Pitt, Georgia Tech, Maryland and UVA.
Listed at 6-0, 200, Willis still has plenty of developing to do. However, he was a great player as a freshman last year. He played on the edge at the line of scrimmage. It’s unclear which position he projects to at the college level, but right now Backer would be the right guess, depending on his future growth.
