Defensive End, Class of 2020
Sandy Creek High School, Tyrone, GA
Virginia Tech picked up a second commitment on Sunday night when 2020 defensive end Justin Beadles gave his pledge to the Hokies. He becomes the 11th commitment of the 2020 class, and the first defensive end of the class.

Beadles is a 6-5, 230-pound defensive end from Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, GA, which is just southwest of Atlanta. He is listed as a 3-star recruit by the recruiting services, though his offer list is impressive for a 3-star. It includes Arizona State, Boston College, LSU, Maryland, Missouri, Pitt, and a few others.
Beadles visited Blacksburg over the weekend and committed to the coaching staff on his visit. He was previously committed to Arizona State, but decommitted in mid-October.
Beadles was one of a number of defensive end prospects who visited Blacksburg this weekend, along with Texas products such as Alec Bryant, Robert Wooten and Clinton Anokwuru. It’s very possible that the Hokies could add to their defensive end haul between now and Signing Day.
