Q&A: Oscar Smith Star Discusses Commitment

Oscar Smith (Chesapeake, VA) junior running back JC Coleman had visited Virginia Tech before, but never for a game.

“Even though it was just the Spring Game, the atmosphere was real electric,” Coleman said.

The Spring Game atmosphere included, the day went perfectly for Coleman, who ended up being one of two 2012 class prospects to commit to the Hokies on Saturday.

In the 5-7, 170-pound standout, Virginia Tech scores a running back with big-play speed and big-time versatility. He has averaged 1400 yards rushing each of the past two seasons, adding 30 receptions for 485 yards this past season as a junior. He earned offers from Duke, Florida International, Maryland, Old Dominion, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia before going with the Hokies.
