TSL caught up with Virginia Tech 2006 recruit Jason Adjepong for a Q&A. The 6-3, 250-pound Adjepong, a 4-star defensive end recruit who earned AP first-team all-state honors for his senior season performance (107 tackles, 17 tackles-for-loss, 10 sacks), answers questions about his recruiting process, how he made and stuck with his decision as well as his future at Virginia Tech.
Q&A with Jason Adjepong
TSL: What have you been up to since signing day?
Jason Adjepong: “Just working out. It’s been real quiet (laughs). You go through so many months of getting calls everyday and getting mail everyday to go to being regular again. I’ve just been working out, trying to keep my grades up and trying to get in shape.”
TSL: Speaking of your grades, are you all set academically to go to Virginia Tech?
Jason Adjepong: “Yeah, I’m all set. My SAT score was good enough. I’ll just send in my final transcript and I’ll be good.”
TSL: When do you arrive at Virginia Tech?
Jason Adjepong: “I don’t know the exact day. I think I’ll be leaving the last week in June.”
TSL: Did you have a ceremony on signing day?
Jason Adjepong: “I had a little press conference at my school. I had about 100 people there. We had a little breakfast, watched a little film and we all gave our speeches.”
TSL: Did it feel pretty good to sign that letter of intent and to have officially ended the recruiting process?
Jason Adjepong: “Well, I didn’t get the feeling until afterwards. It was maybe a day or so afterwards when I realized it was all over and I found my home with Virginia Tech. Maybe the next day I was just lying around and thinking wow, it’s all over. No more visits. No more coaches. I just felt good about the situation.”
TSL: Did making your verbal commitment have more of an impact on you?
Jason Adjepong: “The verbal commitment was even better. I mean, because, you’re in the middle of everything. You’re getting closer to signing day and the other schools were pursuing me real hard. It was a lot of stress. I had head coaches in that whole week. I verballed on a Friday or Saturday I believe, and the whole week I had head coach’s coming into my house and actually sitting down and talking with my parents. It was stressful because that week I felt that Tech was the place but I wanted to give everybody that fair try....
