Dan River (Ringgold, VA) linebacker/running back Trey Edmunds plans to focus on recruiting this summer, with the primary goal of making a college commitment before the start of his senior year. The 6’2″, 200-pound prospect currently holds six scholarship offers, including four from the Atlantic Coast Conference.

“Virginia Tech is a great school. They have a great tradition. The coaches are great. I like the campus. I went there recently after a track meet. No coaches were there. It was just me and my track coach just making a quick visit.”
Edmunds has more to learn about Texas Tech and Vanderbilt. The Red Raiders, though, do have a connection to the versatile athlete.
