6-7, 325-pound recruit Bobby Massie verbally committed to Virginia Tech shortly after his official visit to Tech in late September. Liberty Christian Academy’s (Lynchburg, VA) star offensive tackle/defensive tackle remains committed to the Hokies but now says he may make at least one more official visit.
