6-2, 230-pound Culpeper (VA) standout linebacker prospect Terence Fells-Danzer was another prospect to visit both the Virginia Tech and Virginia spring games. Virginia was the first and only program to offer before these recent visits, but things changed before Tech’s spring game began.

“I received an offer from Virginia Tech right before the spring game started,” said Fells-Danzer, who was making his second ever trip to Tech.

Fells-Danzer had to leave the game at halftime, but arrived in Blacksburg early enough in the day to get a tour from primary recruiter Torrian Gray.

“Torrian Gray took me around and showed me the weight room, the locker room and how everything worked,” Fells-Danzer said. “He explained to me the academic part of the scholarship. He said everybody there would be pushing me academically and athletically.”

He spoke with defensive coordinator Bud Foster and head coach Frank Beamer as well.

“I talked to them briefly,” Fells-Danzer said. “Coach Beamer talked to me for a little bit longer. He asked me a few questions. He asked me how I was holding up because he knew I had an ankle injury and he wanted to make sure I was healthy.”

Saturday’s experience at Virginia appears to have also gone well.

“It was a little bit wet, but other than that I loved going down there,” Fells-Danzer said. “I got to meet a lot of the players like Chris Long, Deyon Williams and a few of the linebackers. Watching them, I realized I could be in one of these uniforms one day.”

Fells-Danzer had a chance to talk to UVa coaches too, and they weren’t shy about their interest in the talented athlete.

“I talked to Anthony Poindexter, both of the Groh coaches, coach Belin and Bob Diaco,” Fells-Danzer said. “They all pretty much said the same thing – we want you at our school. We’ve seen the tape and we just want you here.”

In light of the recent visits, Fells-Danzer was asked if either in-state program had pulled ahead
