Multiple outlets, including 247Sports and Rivals, report that Virginia Tech has received a verbal commitment from 6’4″, 245-pound junior defensive end Michael Barnett. The Woodland (Dorchester, S.C.) product picked the Hokies over offers from Clemson, Florida, Florida State and Tennessee, among others.

In Barnett, Virginia Tech gets a prospect rated on the 4-star level by Rivals, 247Sports, ESPN and Scout. More importantly, Frank Beamer and staff land a player they offered first, a clear indication of how highly the Palmetto State prospect is on their board. Barnett turned in an impressive junior season, amassing almost 90 tackles including 31 tackles for loss on a 10-2 Woodland team.

Barnett visited Blacksburg four times this year, most recently for the home regular season finale against Maryland. He also took trips to Florida, Florida State, and Tennessee before coming to his decision.

Tech has now two commitments in the class of 2015, as Barnett joins Gonzaga (Washington, D.C.) defensive back Marcus Lewis, who verbally committed while in Blacksburg for the Maryland game. Stay tuned to TSL for more from the newest Hokie soon, but in the meantime click here to view his junior season highlights on Hudl.com.

  1. Michael Barnett is the kind of recruit that makes other prospects take notice. Big Mike, come on down the aisle!!

  2. Great to get a Big tall 4 star from SC! THAT is the kind of guy we need to have to be able to compete long term…

  3. Recruiting is “where it’s at.” Gotta have the horses. Wonderful that the MD loss wasn’t dissuading. On to C’ville to make a statement.

  4. we are off to a great start for 2015. I really think Stiney as
    RC and the new hires along w/the coaches remaining are going to be a huge upgrade than what were doing!

  5. Awesome! Welcome Mr Barnett!!

    Wonder how many Clemson fans are complaining that Dabo can’t keep instate talent at home anymore?
