Four Commits In The Fold

Vinny Mihota earned all-state honors his junior season

Heading into the spring, Virginia Tech has received verbal commitments from four prospects — RB Marshawn Williams , TE/DL Xavier Burke , DE Vinny Mihota , and CB Javon Harrison — in the class of 2014.

Williams made headlines recently by transferring from Hampton High School (Hampton, VA), where he played for three seasons under head coach Mike Smith, to Hampton’s arch-rival, Phoebus High School (Hampton).  When the news initially broke, information also surfaced that Williams was de-committing from Virginia Tech in order to explore other options.  Since the initial report, Williams has indicated that he would explore other options but was still committed to the Hokies.  We have labeled him a “soft commit” for the time being, but I expect he will end up signing with the Hokies.

Burke and Mihota seem very solid in their commitments. Mihota recently landed an offer from Alabama but maintained his pledge to Tech remained firm.  Harrison is a little less solid at this point, but for now he remains committed.
