Deep Run (Glen Allen, VA) offensive tackle Conner Davis , one of the top offensive line recruits in the state of Virginia, attended Virginia Tech’s junior day on Saturday. The 6-5, 255-pound junior discussed the trip, which comes two weeks after he attended a junior day at the University of Virginia.
Of the Virginia Tech experience, Davis said, “It went really well. They showed us all the facilities and the academic stuff. Overall, it was a really good trip.”
