Good Counsel (Olney, MD) class of 2015 defensive end Darius Fullwood announced via Twitter this afternoon that he has verbally committed to Virginia Tech, one day after announcing that he had decommitted from the University of Kentucky.

Fullwood, a 6’4″, 240-pound senior, originally pledged to the Wildcats on June 28. Virginia Tech was one of three finalists at that time, joining UK and Maryland. Ohio State was high on Fullwood’s list as well around that time, but the Buckeyes, who at one point had a solid offer on the table, decided to focus their efforts elsewhere.

Rivals.com rates Fullwood as a 4-star recruit and the no. 17 strong-side defensive end in the nation. 247Sports, ESPN and Scout rank him as a 3-star prospect.

The Good Counsel product spoke highly of Tech throughout the process, saying earlier: “I like that they are a defensive-minded program. They have a great defense every year. They are always contending in big games. Their goal is to win double-digit games every year. They have a good business program and a good network after school. I have friends there. Kendall (Fuller) was a teammate of mine in high school, and Melvin (Keihn) is a good friend of mine.”

Fullwood returned to Blacksburg for a visit this past Saturday. Four days later, he is now a Hokie. Virginia Tech now has 14 verbal commitments in this class and seems poised to add another recruit this Friday, when Hopewell (VA) defensive end Darrell Taylor announces his choice. Many feel Taylor is leaning in Tech’s direction.
