Warhill (Williamsburg, VA) senior Parker Osterloh is on schedule to enroll at Virginia Tech in a little over three months.

“It’s starting to kick in.  I’m a little nervous, but not too bad,” Osterloh said.

The 6’8″, 290-pound prospect obviously could stay a full year at Warhill if he wished, but early enrollment is something he has eyed for some time.  Tech loses its two current starting tackles, Nick Becton and Vinston Painter, to graduation, and there isn’t a lot of experience in place behind those two.  A promising spring could potentially put Osterloh in the conversation for early playing time next fall.

“My goal is to go in there, work hard, and do the best I can in spring football,” said Osterloh, who is finishing up his application to Virginia Tech.

“If I can, I’d definitely like to [play next season].  I know there will be just a couple of offensive tackles next year.  They have a senior line this year.  Depending on how I do in spring football and what Coach Beamer needs, I’d love to play.  But I’ll do whatever the team needs.”

Asked what he is looking forward to the most about playing in Lane Stadium, Osterloh, who has attended Tech’s wins over Georgia Tech and Bowling Green this season, said:  “It’s just so loud and the fans are so great.  They are on their feet the entire game.  They have such good support.

“It’s definitely crazy to think about [being a member of Tech’s football program].  I’m super excited.  I’m sure I’ll get nervous when the time gets closer, but at the moment I’m really excited.”

Before he arrives in Blacksburg, Osterloh would like to end his Warhill career in style.  His team is 3-2 heading
