Virginia Tech has had success from its first senior camp, landing several commits as a result of the event. It’s lone commitment coming in, Stone Bridge (Ashburn, VA) defensive tackle/offensive lineman David Wang , performed well at the camp, something that no doubt excited the staff as much as landing those commitments.
“It is always a pleasure being down there, but as far as the camp goes I thought I did well,” Wang said. “I ran a 4.9 in the 40 and I did good on all of the footwork drills. I was two for two in the one-on-one drills, too.”
Exactly which position the 6-2, 300-pound rising senior will play at Virginia Tech had been in question previously, but that no longer appears to be the case. Now, the Tech staff seems to have Wang designated for defensive tackle, the position he played at last Saturday’s camp.
A VHSCA first-team all-state selection last season for his play at offensive tackle, Wang is excited about his potential future on the defensive side of the ball.
“I think I’ll make a better defensive tackle than an offensive tackle,” said Wang. “Throughout the years, [Virginia Tech’s coaches] have had big defensive linemen but every single one is strong and quick. I think I fit pretty well into that mold.”
Wang enjoyed working under Coach Wiles and Coach Foster at camp.
“I like the way Coach Foster runs the whole defense, but I also like how Coach Wiles is so involved in the defense,” Wang said. “Coach Wiles is a great guy. I love talking with him. His criticism helps you and I like that he doesn’t compliment you too much.”
Wang also enjoyed his time with another top defensive line prospect.
“Most of the camp I was talking to Nick Acree,” Wang said. Acree, of course, is Tech’s first commitment of the 2010 class. “He is a well-rounded kid. He is a nice kid overall. Honestly, when I first saw him, I thought he was in my class…throughout the day I thought that. His size was really impressive. He really looked good.”
Virginia Tech’s camp isn’t the first camp Wang has impressed at this spring. He did so as well as last month’s Nike Camp held in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
“I thought I did pretty well there,” Wang recalled of his time in Chapel Hill. “It was a nice hot day, but I did the...
