Deep Run (Glen Allen, VA) defensive back Antone Exum spent all day in Blacksburg last Friday visiting Virginia Tech. The 6-0, 210-pound rising senior had never visited Tech before, but last week’s visit appears to have met all expectations according to Deep Run head coach Greg Kendall.

“He loved it. He had a great, great time,” Kendall said. “He left home in time to watch the 6 a.m. workout. He got up before the crack of dawn to drive over there. He stayed around for the 7:30 a.m. workouts and then he met with Coach Beamer and had a really nice, long conversation with him. He appreciated the time Coach Beamer spent with him. He met with some academic people and talked about possible majors and academic support and I know he was really impressed with that. He toured the campus and the facilities. He got to see them go through workouts in the afternoon and then he drove back. He never spent the night there, but he made a full day of it.

“Antone said he was very impressed with Tech. I know he could see himself being a Hokie. He is always excited when he comes back from a visit, but I know Virginia Tech is in the group of schools he is strongly considering and I think they’ve got a good chance of being the school he chooses.”

Coach Kendall believes that all of the schools that have offered remain in contention, but he adds that that several programs may be in stronger position right now.

“I think Virginia Tech and Maryland and Penn State are all up there. I think he was also really impressed with West Virginia,” Kendall said. “I’d say that is probably the lead group, but I hate to imply that the other schools are not necessarily in the mix because that is not the case.”

Exum, who is Deep Run’s starting signal caller, does not have any set plans to make a college decision before his senior season begins. Deep Run has already had two of its 2009 class of players commit to Division 1A programs – cornerback
