Top cornerback prospect Adeboye Aromire was unable to attend Virginia Tech’s junior day on Saturday, but he now plans to visit the second weekend in March. Virginia Tech was the first school to show serious interest in the H.D. Woodson (Washington, D.C.) junior, who received an official offer from the Hokies in January.
“My sophomore year, a lot of our players were getting attention recruiting-wise,” Aromire said. “I played on the varsity that year but never got any attention. Coming into my junior year, I met coach Sherman. He really was the first coach to contact me. I met him at school when he came to recruit Ricardo [Young]. We clicked from when we first met. I’ve since talked to the defensive coordinator and the defensive backs coach. They all make me feel at home. I’ve talked to coach Beamer on the phone. He said he liked my abilities. The defense there calls for versatile defensive backs and I feel like I can do it all. I feel like it would be a good fit for me. Ricardo speaks a lot about Virginia Tech. There is prestige there. I really have built a strong liking for Virginia Tech.”
Maryland has also officially offered and the 6-0, 180-pound prospect is interested in the Terrapins program.
“As far as Maryland goes, I always wanted to be a Terp growing up,” Aromire said. “I wanted to be the hometown hero and be able to play in front of my brothers, sisters and cousins. I always felt I would commit as soon as Maryland offered, but as you grow up you analyze everything.”
The H.D. Woodson star would ideally like to commit this summer, but he has no set timetable and will wait longer if he is not 100-percent sure. Asked if he could pick right now between Maryland and Tech, Aromire answered, “I’m not really sure. Both are really great programs.”
Maryland and Virginia Tech are the only two programs to extend official offers, but Aromire claims verbal offers from a handful of others including Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina, Temple and West Virginia. Georgia impressed when the talented corner visited there last November and Aromire plans to return to Athens for another visit. Illinois and North Carolina are also on the visit list right now.
