Wyatt Teller , one of the top line prospects in the state of Virginia’s class of 2013, made recent visits to Virginia and Virginia Tech.  Both schools have offered and are in hot pursuit of the 6’5″, 253-pound Liberty (Bealeton, VA) product, who discusses both schools in this latest update.

Teller’s most recent visit was to Virginia Tech for its junior day on February 18.

“I knew it was a great school, so it’s not like I was surprised.  I knew they had nice stuff already,” Teller said of Tech.  “It was still good to see it, to be around it and walk around.  It’s not just the weight-room.  It’s the whole place.  There were a few questions I had, like what were they looking at me for.  They answered everything pretty well.  They talked about education.  I’m focused on getting an education, and I have been since I was young.  I’m not just saying that, either.  The school I go to, they definitely have to take education seriously with football second.”

“Coach Beamer, I talked to him earlier in the morning,” Teller said.  “I had met him before.  He came to our school, but we were just able to say hi and that’s it.  This was the first time I was able to talk to him.  He’s pretty cool.  He ensured me he’s going to be there.  Coach Foster, I got to shake his hand and say hey.  He was focused on his players, so I understood why he couldn’t spend a lot of time with me, but I talked to him for a few minutes.”

Asked what stood out the most about the experience at Tech, Teller answered:  “Basically, just how much football means
