Virginia Tech received some good news on Saturday morning when the state of Virginia’s top offensive lineman gave Frank Beamer his verbal commitment. William Alvarez becomes the ninth commitment for the Hokies’ 2007 recruiting class.
Alvarez, a 6-5, 305-lbs. offensive lineman from Hylton High School in Woodbridge, VA, is rated the #6 recruit in the state of Virginia by TechSideline.com. The commitment of Alvarez is extremely important for the Hokies, who need offensive linemen in this year’s class. With Alvarez, along with the #10 recruit in the state, Blake DeChristopher, Tech is off to a great start at this important position.
“William liked every school he visited,” Coach Sorrentino remarked. “But when he went to Tech it was just a special feeling. It’s obviously a good sign when you enjoy camp so much that you decide to take your parents on a visit the next week.”
Alvarez visited Virginia Tech last Saturday for football camp, and came away very impressed. He decided to visit again this weekend, and to bring his parents along with him.
Alvarez chose the Hokies over his other top two schools, Miami and UNC. Both schools had extended scholarship offers. He also had offers from Maryland, Penn State and UVA. He is a very versatile player, according to Coach Sorrentino.
“He can play all five positions along the line,” Coach Sorrentino said. “He’s never played center, but he could. He played tackle for us last year, and could end up at guard this year.”
That type of versatility makes him an extremely important pickup for Virginia Tech.
