Virginia Tech’s first one-day camp of 2012 takes place this Sunday, and Mills Godwin (Richmond, VA) offensive lineman Eric Tetlow is one of the rising seniors with a real chance at earning an offer from the Hokies.  Boston College, Navy, Old Dominion, Pittsburgh, Purdue and Wake Forest have already offered the 6’6″, 290-pound prospect.

“I feel like Virginia Tech is really close.  If they offer me, I feel like it will be at the camp or within a week after the camp,” Tetlow said.  “My recruiter, Shane Beamer, has seen me workout.  On his second visit (during the Evaluation Period) he came to see me workout.  He’s excited about me.  Honestly, I feel like once the offensive line coach sees me, they’ll offer.  Hopefully, a Virginia Tech offer would come as soon as this weekend.”

Tetlow attended one of Tech’s one-day camps last year.  He’s excited, not just for the prospect of earning an offer, but just to be able to show how much he has developed since last year.

“I’m looking forward to actually working with the offensive line coaches specifically,” Tetlow said.  “Last year, I went there as a sophomore and they didn’t really know who I was.  They were focused on recruiting the 2011/2012 class.  I know the coaches well, so I’m looking forward to showing them what kind of player I’ve become.  I think I’m a lot quicker, faster, and more explosive than my film from last fall shows.”

The Eagles standout will visit Wake Forest on Saturday before heading to Blacksburg on Sunday.  A commitment isn’t likely at either place as Tetlow would like to make a few more trips before making a college choice.  Of the schools that have offered, he has only visited Navy and Pittsburgh.

“I think I’m going to have to take a couple more visits before [a commitment comes],” Tetlow said.
