Virginia Tech has picked up the sixth commitment for the 2004 recruiting class. Northside (Roanoke, VA) defensive end Brandon Holland announced for the Hokies on WSLS NBC Channel 10 in Roanoke last night.
Holland, who has long favored the Hokies, received scholarship offers from Virginia Tech, Clemson, West Virginia, and Maryland. Tech Quarterbacks Coach Kevin Rogers was the primary recruiter.
“He did verbally commit to Virginia Tech,” said Northside Athletic Director Ed Deeds.
At 6-5, 280 pounds, Holland is being recruited to play defensive end by Virginia Tech. With long arms and good footwork, he could play several different positions including offensive tackle, offensive guard, defensive end, and defensive tackle. For Northside, he is a full-time defensive end and plays sparingly as a blocking tight end.
“Brandon is a big man with good agility, good lateral movement, and very long arms,” said Northside Head Coach Jim Hickam in an interview earlier this year. “He has a good motor and a good work ethic in the weight room.”
Virginia Tech has received two verbal commitments within seven days, with Holland being the most recent. Jack Britt High School (Fayetteville, NC) running back George Bell committed last Wednesday.
