Luella (Locust Grove, GA) rising senior star Detrick Bonner hadn’t planned on committing this week, but that changed quickly when Virginia Tech offered on Wednesday. After discussing his college decision with his parents, the 6-0, 170-pound standout decided to call primary recruiter Torrian Gray and commit late last night.

“It was just something that kind of happened,” Bonner said. “I wasn’t really thinking about it. When Virginia Tech’s offer came in, I thought I’d take the offer and commit. My parents said I should go ahead and commit. I talked to Coach Gray and he sounded excited. He didn’t believe me at first. I guess he didn’t think I would take it that quickly.”

Tech recruited Luella safety Roderick Sweeting in the 2009 class before Sweeting ended up choosing Georgia Tech. During that recruitment, the Tech staff first began pursuing Bonner, who played cornerback and wide receiver last season as a junior.
