Virginia Tech picked up a commitment from Butler Community College (KS) linebacker Amare Barno on Monday. Barno is the 19th commitment of the 2019 recruiting class, and the second JUCO player in the class.
Barno, listed at 6-6, 220, visited Virginia Tech without an offer over the weekend. He received an offer on his visit, and it didn’t take him long to choose the Hokies over Nebraska. He had 66 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks for Butler this season.
Barno is originally from Blythewood, SC, which is just north of Columbia. He projects as either a Backer or a defensive end for the Hokies. He’s expected to sign his Letter of Intent on Wednesday.
We’ll have a full preview of what to expect on Signing Day coming up tomorrow.
