Local Star QB/ATH Headed To VT

It has been 18 days since Virginia Tech’s latest 2012 class football commitment, almost a drought considering the Hokies racked up 12 verbals from February 2 through June 4. Tech is back on the board, though, after Christiansburg (VA) rising senior quarterback/athlete Brenden Motley verbally committed to the Hokies this afternoon.

Motley, a 6’4″, 190-pound quarterback and free safety for the Blue Demons, picked Tech over offers from Georgia Tech and the University of Virginia. He also drew serious interest from Nebraska, Notre Dame, among others, but for all intents and purposes he narrowed his list to the two Techs in May.

Brenden took an unofficial to Georgia Tech last weekend before electing to attend college close to home.

“He committed to Virginia Tech this afternoon,” Christiansburg head coach Tim Cromer said, referring to Brenden.
