FB Recruiting Notes


Derrick Nnadi at Virginia Tech’s camp in 2012

Defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi ‘s offer list includes some prominent schools outside of the state.  There is Florida State, which has been re-establishing itself as one of the top football power.  There is Mississippi, which signed one of the top recruiting classes in the country this past February.  West Virginia and Wisconsin are among the other out-of-state offers the Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) star rising senior has received.  At this point, though, I think there is a good chance the 6’2″, 305-pound prospect ultimately decides between in-state rivals UVa and Virginia Tech.

Nnadi visited each in-state ACC school recently, attending a spring practice at Virginia on March 23 and spending a few days in Blacksburg this past weekend.  Attempts to reach Nnadi for comments have been unsuccessful so far, but he did tweet the following about his time at Virginia Tech:  “Had a nice time out here in Blacksburg.”

In my opinion, this could end up being the top in-state battles between the Hoos and the Hokies in the 2014 class.
