H.D. Woodson (Washington, D.C.) cornerback Adeboye Aromire attended Virginia Tech’s Spring Game, making what was his first ever visit to Blacksburg. The 6-0, 180-pound junior enjoyed the experience, especially the chance to spend time with head coach Frank Beamer.
“The Tech visit was really a good experience,” Aromire said. “I was promised a lot of things by Ricardo Young, my former teammate, and my recruiting coach, Kevin Sherman. They told me a lot of good things about it. They were right. I spent a lot of time with Coach Beamer. I felt like they welcomed me with open arms. The team looked great.

Adeboye also took in UNC’s Spring Game last month and provided the highlights of that experience.
