After a bad day on the recruiting trail, the Hokies finally ended the day on a good note, as Fork Union’s Maurice Reevey, one of the most highly coveted players on Virginia Tech’s list, committed to the Hokies. He picked Tech over Clemson in a narrow battle.
Reevey’s commitment ended the day on an uptick for the Hokies, who had lost LB Jerod Mayo to Tennessee and DE Olu Hall to UVa earlier in the afternoon.
“I’m headed to Blacksburg,” Reevey said. “It was a hard decision, but I’d just rather be close to home, where my mother and my family could see me play. I’m looking forward to them having the chance to see me play.”
Reevey spoke in a familiar vein when he gave his reasons for choosing Virginia Tech.
“When I went up there, I knew everybody. I just felt comfortable there.”
The athletic and versatile Reevey, who played for Highland Springs High School (Richmond, VA) before enrolling at Fork Union, says his FUMA experience was tough, but worth it. “I feel that will help me a lot once I get to Virginia Tech. It’s such a hard experience, if I can make it through that, I can make it through anything.”
Standing 6-4, weighing 225, and running a 4.5 forty, Reevey could play a lot of different positions. He played tailback at Highland Springs, but spent the entire season injured at Fork Union, where he was listed as a defensive end.
Where does he project at Virginia Tech? His answer is interesting. “I’m going in there as an offensive player, probably an H-back position, or in the slot.”
Reevey is repeating his senior year at FUMA and expects to qualify.
