Briar Woods Star Planning VT Visit

Briar Woods (Ashburn, VA) rising senior quarterback/safety Trace McSorley has amassed double-digit offers, including Boston College, Connecticut, North Carolina, Ohio, Old Dominion, Vanderbilt and Virginia Tech, among others.  He hit the recruiting trail recently, taking in junior day events at Maryland (no offer) and UNC.

“Both were really good,” McSorley said.  “I got to talk to the coaches and see where they would see me coming in, especially at Maryland.  It was also the same at UNC, just getting to talk to the coaches more.”

Virginia Tech was one of the first to extend an offer to the 6’1″, 185-pound McSorley, who is getting college interest as a quarterback and safety.  North Carolina has mentioned safety and possibly receiver, and this spring the Tar Heel coaches will watch him throw to further evaluate at quarterback.  Virginia Tech likes him as a safety.

“I’ve been talking to Coach (Torrian) Gray, kind of keeping up with him,” said McSorley, who attended camp at Tech last summer.  “I might do a junior day there on April 6, but I might just try to go to a spring practice… I want to get there this spring.”
