Collins Headlines Weekend Visitors

One of Virginia Tech’s biggest targets of the 2009 class will be in Blacksburg this weekend. Brooke Point (Stafford, VA) defensive end Lanford Collins, a 6-4, 240-pound prospect who is #10 on TSL’s Postseason Top 40 list, will be on an official visit to Virginia Tech.

After receiving double-digit scholarship offers, Collins has reportedly narrowed his list of schools to three – Penn State, Virginia and Virginia Tech. He made official visits to Virginia and Penn State in December and also traveled to Boston College earlier in the fall, but the Eagles are no longer in contention.

As a senior, Collins racked up 54 tackles including 14 tackles-for-loss and nine sacks.

At this point, Collins appears to be the only big-time uncommitted official visitor this weekend. Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) star offensive lineman Devin Bolling originally planned to make his official visit as well, but it appears the 6-5, 270-pound senior has given a verbal commitment to Wake Forest.
