National Signing Day is less than a week away, and Virginia Tech is looking to close strong with three top 10 in-state recruits – Clover Hill (Midlothian) wide receiver Joel Caleb , Centreville (Clifton) defensive end Ken Ekanem and Brookville (Lynchburg) defensive tackle Korren Kirven . Here is the latest on those three recruits:
– Caleb will not travel anywhere this weekend. He will announce his decision on Signing Day, and the decision is down to three schools: Ohio State, Virginia Tech and West Virginia. Most, however, feel the decision will come down to Tech and WVU. Tech has been the rumored favorite for the 6’3″, 215-pound receiver for some time, and although some reports indicate he is impressed with West Virginia’s offense, we feel good about Tech’s chances next Wednesday.
Clover Hill’s Signing Day ceremony, which is when Caleb will reveal his decision, is at 8:15 a.m. TSL will be on hand for the announcement.

Ekanem is scheduled to announce his college choice on Signing Day (February 1) at 9:00 a.m. at Centreville High School. Check out this Washington Post report for information on watching the first-team all-metro selection’s announcement live.
– As for Kirven, he will be in Blacksburg this weekend on an official visit. The 6’4″, 270-pound senior is also considering Alabama and Tennessee, and he made official visits to both of those schools earlier this month. We think the home-state school will win out in the end, but a final decision likely won’t come until Signing Day.
Kirven will be surrounded this weekend by several committed players also making official visits. Those confirmed by TSL include DL Woody...
