South View (Hope Mills, NC) 6-4, 240-pound tight end/defensive end Jonathan Hannah finally made his official visit to Virginia Tech this past weekend. Hannah, who had to reschedule his Tech official visit, commented on the amount of noise in the 19-13 win over West Virginia.
“It was a great atmosphere,” Hannah said of the game. “I think it’s easily one of the loudest stadiums in the nation. The fans get you wanting to play for them. The crowd was great and I enjoyed it.”
Hannah was hosted by Duane Brown, a player Hannah knew heading into the visit. The visit gave Hannah a chance to get to know more players and coaches.
“Everybody was crazy,” Hannah said with a laugh. “It was really like one big family. I felt like I fit right in with the team. The atmosphere after the game went well. I hung out with the players. I got to know the coaches and the players better than I knew them before. I have a good relationship with both of them.”
Hannah studied the Tech offense on his visit as well, saying “they did try to throw to the tight ends several times, which was one of the things I was looking for.”
On Sunday, Hannah met with Coach Beamer before leaving for home. His impressions of the head coach were very favorable.
“He’s a great guy,” Hannah said of Coach Beamer. “He’s very humble. I could see myself playing for him. He told me to make the right decision for me and he told me he thinks these things really come down to the people. I agree with him on that.”
The official visit to Virginia Tech marked the second time Hannah had visited Blacksburg this year. He appeared to have a great time on this visit, but that doesn’t mean anything has changed with regard to his favorites list.
“It didn’t really change anything,” Hannah said. “I’m still kind of even right now. I know Tech will be there until the end though.”
Hannah has an official visit to Penn State and one to Oklahoma set up. Florida State may take the place of Georgia for another official visit. N.C. State and UNC are also heavily in the mix for the top tight end, who will decide based on his visit experiences as well as a gut feeling.
“Probably a little bit of both,” Hannah said. “I’ll consider what school I got the best feeling from my visits, but then I’ll think about everything too.”
