Two more Virginia Tech targets are set to announce their college choices. Below is the basic info on those prospects, and this report will be updated as they commit.
– Ricky DeBerry Jr., OLB/DE, 6’3″, 245 pounds, Atlee (Mechanicsville, VA)
DeBerry, a 4-star recruit, will announce around 10 am at his high school. The senior has 8 finalists: Alabama, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Virginia and Virginia Tech.
Virginia Tech’s chances are considered low, but DeBerry has not publicly eliminated any of the final 8.
UPDATE**: DeBerry committed to Oklahoma
– Nyheim Hines, All-Purpose RB, 5’9″, 180 pounds, Garner (N.C.)
Hines announces around 3 pm. Duke, East Carolina, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, NC State, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and West Virginia are the finalists.
Tech stands a better chance with Hines than with DeBerry. If you go by the 247Sports Crystal Ball feature, NC State is the favorite. We’ll find out for sure this afternoon.
UPDATE**: Hines committed to NC State
Which will it be? I will be making my decision Friday, December 19, 2014 at the Garner High School gym at 3:00 pm pic.twitter.com/fvwM1RrvXO
