Virginia Tech is one of the latest Division 1A programs to extend an official scholarship offer to 6-4, 220-pound Victory Christian Center (Charlotte, N.C.) defensive end Justin Foxx , who is now up to eight scholarship offers with more possibly on the way very soon. The interest is reciprocated, as Foxx is interested in making a visit to Blacksburg.
“Virginia Tech is on the high radar for him. I can tell you that much from speaking with him. He plans on visiting there sometime,” said Victory Christian head coach Frank Crockett, who also added that there are no clear favorites for the talented end.
Besides Virginia Tech, Duke, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, N.C. State, South Carolina and West Virginia have also offered the Tar Heel state star. Clemson, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest are among the other programs expressing heavy interest in Foxx, who played weak-side defensive end last season as a junior.
“He is an up-the-field pass rusher,” Crockett said. “He has great speed and hands. He is a relentless type of pass rusher. He works very hard in the weight room and I think that is what teams see in him. He’ll be the type of player who can play well for a long time.”
In terms of projected position, defensive end seems to be the consensus among the interested college coaches.
“All of the schools have offered him at defensive end with the exception of Iowa, which likes him as a linebacker,” Crockett said.
This summer, Foxx plans to make a number of unofficial visits to potential college suitors. There is no timetable to make a college decision.
“He plans to visit all of these schools and get in with the coaching staff and see if he meshes with them,” Crockett said. “From that point on, he is hoping to be able to make a clear cut decision.”
