Hokies Offer Atlantic QB

Interest is heating up for Atlantic Community (Delray Beach, FL) quarterback Mark Leal , who has received five official offers with two more on the way. Virginia Tech has officially offered the 6-1, 185-pound prospect, who threw for 1,785 yards and 17 touchdowns last season as a junior.

“Coach Wiles liked him but said they hadn’t analyzed the tape as a staff,” Atlantic head coach Andre Thaddies recalled. “One day, he called said it was a go. He said he had the thumbs up to offer him.”

Coach Thaddies and staff recently completed Leal’s junior tape and it has made a big difference on the recruiting trail.

“Things have picked up tremendously for him,” Thaddies said. “When we initially sent out video on him, we only had the first four games on tape. We recently completed his tape. He has now been offered by Virginia Tech and Oregon, Rutgers, Pitt and Minnesota. Ole Miss and Kansas called [yesterday] and their offers should be in the mail.”
