Eric Tetlow ‘s weekend began in Winston-Salem (N.C.), where he participated in Wake Forest’s camp on Saturday.  Tetlow already had an offer from the Demon Deacons, but the camp provided a chance to get to know the coaches and the university much better.

“I was really impressed, actually,” Tetlow said of his experience this past Saturday.  “I really liked the campus.  It was really nice.  It was small… secluded almost.  They have a nice stadium.  It may not be the biggest, but it’s really nice.  I really like the staff.  I got to meet Coach Grobe, and I really like him.  It was nice also to get to know the offensive line coach and working with him.”

As expected, the Mills Godwin (Richmond, VA) product headed to Virginia Tech on Sunday.  The 6’6″, 290-pound rising senior participated in Tech’s one-day camp and was pleased with his performance.

“The day went very well,” Tetlow said.  “I got there, registered, went to the field house and started testing.  There were about 180 campers there.  At the end, after everyone had gone, the coaches called out a group of about 15 players to run a third 40.  I was the only lineman picked out, so I felt good that I had a chance to show my stuff.  I ran a 5.3-second 40 my last time.  My first 40 was 5.3, and my second was 5.28.  I didn’t get my shuttle time, but I felt like I did a good shuttle.

“After lunch, we had offensive line drills.  I think I did very well in agilities.  I did well in the offensive work.  Then there was a defensive period, and then one-on-ones.  We only had 25 minutes for the one-on-ones, and there were so many offensive linemen that even though the coaches were picking me to come out, I only had three turns.  I definitely won two.  The last one, the guy beat me inside, but not all the way.  I felt very good about my performance.”

Tetlow had hoped to return to Richmond with an offer from the Hokies, but that
