Newsome’s Commitment To VT Remains Firm

Hampton (VA) athlete Deon Newsome has been committed to Virginia Tech since last May.  There has not been any hint of dissatisfaction with the choice he made, and he held firm recently when the University of Virginia inquired about his status.

“Coach (Mike) Smith told me UVa asked about my status,” said Newsome, who added that the inquiry came in the past few weeks.  “I said I’m staying with [the commitment to Virginia Tech].”

Newsome’s stance is not surprising.  After all, he is less than three weeks away from signing a letter of intent and officially realizing a childhood dream.

“This was my dream as a kid… just to go to Virginia Tech,” the Crabbers senior said.
