6-4, 220-pound defensive end Justin Foxx plans to attend Virginia Tech’s next camp, which will take place on July 12th. According to Victory Christian (Charlotte, N.C.) head coach Frank Crockett, the rising senior defensive end will not be the only Victory Christian standout in Blacksburg that day.
“Justin has got a sidekick he’s been hauling around with him on some trips recently,” Crockett said. “He is Curtis Porter and he is a top [2009 class] recruit. He is transferring in from West Charlotte. He is going to be playing the 3-technique for us and he is a defensive tackle in college. He is 6-2, 330 pounds, and he has been offered by Notre Dame, Michigan, Florida, Florida State and Miami. He left Clemson on Saturday and they are going to offer him as well.

He has not been able to narrow his list of schools just yet, although Crockett says the Charlotte star is excited about the upcoming trip to Blacksburg.
“Justin hasn’t narrowed his list as of yet, but he is very geared up to come to Virginia Tech,” Crockett said. “He cannot wait because of the notoriety of Virginia Tech. He saw Coach Beamer when Coach Beamer came down to recruit [current Clemson Tiger defensive end] Kourtnei Brown. In my book, there is not a finer guy that Coach Beamer. I’m very high on Virginia Tech’s program.
“After Virginia Tech, I don’t think Justin is planning on going...
