Washington Township (NJ) linebacker prospect Hugh D’Imperio was scheduled to visit Virginia Tech this weekend, however his plans changed last night when he verbally committed to Michigan State. D’Imperio has cancelled his visit to Virginia Tech.
“He did commit to Michigan State last night,” Hugh’s mother, Donna D’Imperio said. “He committed last night when their coaches were here. I was surprised that he committed because he never really talked about it. But he went upstairs, talked to his Dad for about 15 minutes, came down and said he wanted to commit. He’s excited because he really likes the position that they are looking at him to play.”
D’Imperio chose the Spartans over Tech and Tennessee. He had developed a great relationship with his recruiting coach from Michigan State, Jeff Stoutland, which also contributed to the decision. He made official visits to Michigan State and Tennessee.
There is another D’Imperio to keep an eye on over the next few years…rising junior Ryan D’Imperio. Ryan, who is 6-2, 220 pounds, started at linebacker last season. He is Hugh’s younger brother.
Mrs. D’Imperio indicated that Virginia Tech is already showing some interest.
“Coach Cavanaugh told us he’ll be talking to us in a few years,” Mrs. D’Imperio said. “They have interest in Ryan right now, and he likes them a lot.”
