Virginia Tech is on a roll in terms of verbal commitments. Today, they picked up a key in-state recruit when Daryl Robertson, a 6-3, 285-pound defensive tackle/offensive lineman out of Liberty (Bedford) committed to coach Beamer.
“He just called to tell me about it,” Daryl’s mother, Lyvern Robertson, said. “We had spoken last night and I knew he was going to do it this morning.”
TSL’s #13 overall prospect in the state, Robertson chose the Hokies over offers from Maryland and Wake Forest. As a junior last season, he earned all-district honors as an offensive guard and a defensive tackle. He also was named to the Roanoke Times all-Timesland team and earned all-region honors at offensive guard.
“He really came into his own as a defensive tackle last year after making the move from nose guard,” Liberty head coach Chris Watts said. “He also played offensive guard for us for the first time and played very well. He works real hard in the weight room.
Stay tuned for more from Daryl on his verbal commitment.
Roberston has the potential to play along the offensive line, but probably projects as a defensive tackle. He’s quick off the ball and shows good strength. He is an excellent addition to the interior DL as well as being a very solid in-state pick-up.
