Virginia Tech held its second one-day camp of 2010 on Saturday. Several rising seniors, including Tech commits Kris Harley and Ronny Vandyke and Tech targets Travis Hughes and Cyrus Kouandjio, were on hand to check out the event and we’ll have much more on their experiences. But following the camp, TSL confirmed two new offers out to younger prospects – one from the 2012 class and one from the 2013 class.

Win Homer Scores VT Offer

Christchurch (VA) rising junior offensive lineman Win Homer now has three verbal offers in the fold, including Boston College, Virginia and Virginia Tech. He received the Tech offer shortly after Saturday’s camp.

“After the camp, we were hanging out with Coach Cav. A whole bunch of different people were waiting to see Coach Beamer before we could talk to him,” recalled the 6-5, 230-pound prospect. “Coach Cav was talking about how important it is to enjoy the last two years of high school. He was talking about how important it is to keep weightlifting. He said to not worry so much about weight, something I’ve heard from all the coaches of the schools I’ve seen so far. Then I got to see Coach Beamer. It was really exciting just to talk to him privately after the camp. I was with my dad and he was talking to me and saying great stuff. Coach Beamer talked about how Coach Newsome liked me and stood up for me and gave a thumbs-up on my behalf. He told me he would like to offer me a scholarship to play at Virginia Tech.

“I could feel my dad beside me. I’m sure he kept a calm face, but obviously I think he was excited. The only thing I could think to say was to thank Coach Beamer and say, ‘Thank you so much and it’s an honor to talk to you.'”

Homer felt he played well at Virginia Tech’s camp, the last in a series of camps he has attended this summer. Other stops included Boston College, Maryland, North Carolina, N.C. State and UVa. Stay tuned for much more from Homer tomorrow on TSL Pass.

Homer wasn’t the only Christchurch (VA) rising junior standout in Blacksburg over the weekend. 6-1, 225-pound linebacker Jeff Williams participated as well.
