Rockbridge County (Lexington, VA) offensive lineman Caleb Farris earned an official scholarship offer from Virginia Tech in early April. Three weeks later, he has accepted the offer, becoming the third player to commit to Tech’s 2010 recruiting class. The 6-4, 300-pound junior, currently in Blacksburg for Tech’s Spring Game, committed to the Hokies this morning.
Farris’ mother, Robin, informed TechSideline.com of the decision.
“He committed around 10:30,” Robin said.
Farris grew up a Virginia Tech fan, attending Tech home football games with his family. He had also been offered by East Carolina and Marshall and received interest from Boston College, Maryland and Virginia, among others.
Farris is the second offensive line prospect to join Tech’s 2010 recruiting class. Unlike FUMA’s Mark Shuman, who is being recruited to play offensive tackle, Farris expects to play on the interior line. Rockbridge head coach Jason White predicts success wherever Farris plays.
“The sky is the limit for him,” White told TSL last fall. “And he has the nastiness and explosion you like to see from lineman.
“He is just an overpowering blocker with a relentless work ethic. He works at it 365 days a year. He really steps up and takes on a leadership role.”
Stay tuned for more from Farris later today, when we catch up with him to discuss his decision.
