Edmunds, a 6’4”, 225-pound outside linebacker recruit out of Dan River High School (Ringgold, VA), will announce his college choice on Thursday, July 31, on WSLS Roanoke Channel 10. The finalists are Maryland, Southern Cal, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. The standout athlete was asked to discuss what he likes most about each of the finalists.

Maryland – “The coaching staff. Coach (Andre) Powell has been around a while, ever since Trey and Terrell came through. I’m anxious about the move to the Big 10.”

Southern Cal – “They have a great coaching staff also. They took the time to come out to Virginia and visit my school. USC, they produce a lot of (NFL) linebackers. I wasn’t able to make a visit out there, but I have spent some time talking to the coach.”

Virginia Tech – “It is just a great community. The fans support ‘em well. Virginia Tech always has one of the top defenses in the nation, which is one thing that stood out to me.”

Wake Forest – “The new coaching staff, I have a good feeling they are going to change things. I have a good relationship with the linebackers coach.”

Both of Tremaine’s older brothers attend Virginia Tech. Trey is a rising red-shirt sophomore running back, while Terrell is an incoming freshman cornerback. Did they give their younger brother some advice on his decision?

“They just told me to do what’s best for me. They said they’d support me no matter what direction I go,” Tremaine said.
