Virginia Tech’s second 2009 camp will take place tomorrow and some top prospects – rising seniors and rising juniors included – are expected to attend. Brookville defensive end Zack McCray strolled into the June camp and committed, while North Carolina defensive end Justin Taylor, who also visited Tech that day, would later commit in July. The staff no doubt is looking for more success this weekend.
Stay tuned to TSL for updates and breaking news tomorrow and throughout the weekend. For now, here is a rundown of those prospects we have confirmed that plan to be in attendance. There are sure to be more, but these are the players we have confirmed so far.
At least a few commitments are expected to attend and I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see more. Rockbridge County (Lexington, VA) offensive lineman Caleb Farris and Atlantic (Delray Beach, FL) quarterback Mark Leal plan to be there, with the latter prospect currently in Blacksburg. Leal (pronounced Lay-All) committed to Tech in early May without having seen Blacksburg before, so this is his first ever trip to Tech. Bishop Kearney (Rochester, N.Y.) standout athlete Jerome Lewis also committed to the Hokies without seeing the campus and may be in town too, though we have not confirmed his plans.
On the target front, Leal’s teammate, Atlantic star wide receiver James Louis, was expected to visit but reportedly will not make the trip and has cut his list. Mount St. Joseph (Baltimore, MD) cornerback Kyle Fuller will be in Blacksburg, his father confirmed to TSL Wednesday night. Fuller, younger brother of former Hokies standout Vincent Fuller, has a Tech offer and is a Tech lean, so don’t be shocked if a commitment comes.
Other targets expected to attend include Lake Braddock (Burke, VA) offensive lineman Khamrone Kolb, who will not participate as he continues to recover from a torn ACL suffered in late winter. Kolb, a 6-6, 300-pound prospect, is visiting Tech for the first time ever. He has a top five of Connecticut, North Carolina, Penn State, UVa and Virginia Tech and has offers from all five programs. Beaufort (S.C.) linebacker Justin Parker, Alcoa (TN) tight end Tyler Robinson and Lake Taylor (Norfolk, VA) linebacker/safety Travis Williams should be there as well and Virginia Tech has offered all three.
