One of Virginia Tech’s biggest – literally and figuratively – 2007 class recruits is well on his way to arriving in Blacksburg next month. 6-5, 315-pound William Alvarez is awaiting official word from the NCAA Clearinghouse but expects to gain clearance to enroll at Virginia Tech.
The former Hylton standout received good news this week according to Hylton head coach Lou Sorrentino.
“We are one step further along,” Sorrentino said. “Will and his guidance counselor talked to the NCAA Clearinghouse on Tuesday. They just said they needed his transcript from a spring night class he took. The implication there is that is all they need so he was real close and was going to be ok. The other good news in the meantime is that, as a back-up, he took a class this summer and did really well. We are awaiting that transcript to send to the Clearinghouse as well.
“It is not official until it officially comes through. I think he is excited about it and it looks pretty good right now. I’m just a little more conservative (laughs).”
Alvarez is one of four talented in-state offensive line prospects that signed with Virginia Tech this past February. Rated a 3-star prospect, he finished up at #10 in the state in TSL’s Postseason Top 30 list. Alvarez earned AP and VHSCA first-team all-state honors for his senior season performance. He is listed as an offensive tackle on Virginia Tech’s official web site.
