Westover (Fayetteville, N.C.) cornerback recruit Lorenzo Williams remains very solid in his commitment to Virginia Tech – a commitment he made back in July, when he became the 12th high school senior to pledge to the Hokies. In fact, having gotten to know Tech’s coaches a little better and having attended a football game in Blacksburg for the first time, Williams is more excited than ever to be a Hokie.

A month ago, there was a report that indicated that Williams may be considering a visit of some sort to Clemson. The 6-2, 198-pound senior discussed that and the recruitment of other schools since he made his verbal to Tech.

“Most of them respect my commitment because when I made it I took it very seriously,” Williams said. “Virginia Tech is where I wanted to go. Some other coaches asked my coach and he’d tell them my verbal commitment is a commitment. The only school I know that tried to keep in contact with me was Clemson. They tried to get me to make a visit. I told them I didn’t know if I would make one, but really I never was going to make a visit.”

Virginia Tech’s coaches, led by two coaches in particular, have done an excellent job of staying in touch with the talented and versatile prospect.

“They actually have talked to me more since I committed,” Williams said of the Tech coaching staff. “I stay in contact with them at least once a week. I have built a real good relationship with Coach Wiles and Coach Gray. I’m real excited about going up there. I always keep in contact with how the recruiting class is doing. I was real happy to see that they got Bobby Massie. When he made his official, I was up there for the UNC game. We sat by each other.”

Williams’ UNC game experience was his first in Blacksburg. He plans to return next month for one of the final two games. He will make his official visit sometime in January.

“I loved it,” said Williams. “It was crazy. The crowd has so much energy…you could just feel it going through you.”

On the season, Westover is 4-6 with one regular season game remaining. After seeing
