Two of Virginia Tech’s 24 class of 2018 commitments haven’t publicly signed with the Hokies as of Wednesday, December 20. Four-star athlete James Graham is still weighing his decision between Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech. Meanwhile, St. John’s (DC) three-star defensive tackle Cam Goode is also still contemplating his choice. Or somewhat.
Goode, Rivals.com’s No. 55 defensive tackle and No. 7 player in Washington, DC, has been as pro-Hokie as anyone since he gave them his commitment in June. He’s actively recruited other recruits to join him, but he’s not ready to make his destination official.
“Everything’s all good,” Goode said Wednesday afternoon. “I signed my letter of intent. I’m announcing where I’m going February 2. Then, everybody will find out.”
Goode (6-0, 317) said he’s not ready to reveal where he sent that letter of intent and has asked that school to also keep it secret until he announces. He said Wisconsin, West Virginia and Texas Tech have each offered over the past few weeks.
Despite his non-committal approach, Goode said he still is on good terms with the Hokies.
“I love Virginia Tech,” he said. “That’s a special place. I wasn’t looking around, (other schools) just came in the picture and offered me. I haven’t been anywhere else. I’m not taking any officials right now. I still haven’t taken my official visit to Virginia Tech.”
For now, Goode said he plans to officially visit the Hokies Jan. 19. He said he has two others loosely set, but didn’t reveal where.
And while he wouldn’t divulge specifics, Goode said his relationship with Virginia Tech has changed somewhat. That’s played a part in Goode’s current state.
“I had some problems in the recruiting process with Virginia Tech,” he said. “I still love ‘em and they love me. We had a bumpy road, but we’re still good.”
Goode will play in the Under Armour All-American game Jan. 4 in Orlando, Florida.
