Jordan Steffy has become one of Virginia Tech’s top quarterback targets following the spring evaluation period. He returned from the Nike Camp in Blacksburg indicating the Hokies were in his top five, and has since returned for an unofficial visit.
The second visit in a little over one month proved to be a successful one.
“The [unofficial visit] trip to Virginia Tech went real well,” said Steffy. “Coach Rogers gave me a tour of the campus and the facilities. It seemed like he knew almost everything about the game of football. He was very impressive. In fact, other schools that I’ve visited have had nothing but good things to say about Coach Rogers, and that’s really impressive to me.”
Steffy left Blacksburg with a scholarship offer from the Hokies, who have remained in his list of top schools. At this point, the athletic Conestoga Valley high school standout is confident that he will take an official visit to Virginia Tech this fall.
“My list has changed a bit,” said Steffy, whose offer list has grown to 30 schools. “My top six are Maryland, Virginia Tech, Clemson, Syracuse, Michigan State, and UCLA. I think I will definitely officially visit Virginia Tech and Maryland. The other three are kind of wide open right now.”
The recent ACC expansion is an exciting move in the eyes of Steffy, who admits the new ACC can only help Virginia Tech.
“It’s great for the ACC,” said Steffy. “It becomes an incredible football conference – perhaps one of the best in the country. If anything, it helps Virginia Tech because they went from possibly being in a now weaker conference football-wise to being in one of the top conference’s in the country.
“It will be tough, though, if I choose one of the ACC schools because I would have to play against other coaches who were recruiting me. That’s not much of an issue though.”
By the end of the summer, Steffy hopes to have a better idea of who else will make his official visit list. Until then, he will continue unofficially visiting schools in order to help narrow his list further.
