Three of Virginia Tech’s class of 2015 targets will commit between tomorrow and Friday, December 19. The first we’ll hear from is the one Hokie fans have been waiting for throughout this process. Five-star defensive end Josh Sweat, a senior out of Oscar Smith High School (Chesapeake, VA), will reveal his college choice at a 10 am press conference at his high school. TechSideline.com plans to be there for the decision, which is obviously an important one for the Hokies.
Wednesday morning, Sweat will choose either Florida State, Georgia, Ohio State, Oregon or Virginia Tech. The consensus is that the decision will come down to the Hokies and Seminoles.
On Thursday, December 11, Arsenal Tech (Indianapolis, IN) cornerback Adonis Williamson will announce his college choice. Virginia Tech is the favorite here over Louisville, Missouri and Northern Illinois. So far the Hokies have four defensive back commitments in this class, including rover Adonis Alexander, free safety Jahque Alleyne, and corners DuWayne Johnson and Mook Reynolds. Williamson has the versatility Tech likes in its DBs, so he could see action at corner or safety in college in my opinion.
Another announcement takes place on December 19, from 4-star linebacker/defensive end Ricky DeBerry Jr. Alabama, Michigan State, Penn State, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Virginia and Virginia Tech are the finalists for the 6’3”, 245-pound senior, who attends Atlee High School (Mechanicsville, VA). The most likely scenario is that DeBerry leaves the state, but we’ll find out for sure next week. He has not eliminated anyone as of yet (at least publicly).
Stonewall Jackson (Manassas, VA) defensive tackle Tim Settle had planned on announcing his commitment on December 18, but he tweeted today that he now plans to commit at the Under Armour All-American Bowl on January 2. Stonewall Jackson is a school that has been good to Virginia Tech in the past, producing former Hokie tailback Ryan Williams and current Hokie freshman cornerback/punt returner Greg Stroman. The Hokies have a good chance with Settle, who is also considering Oklahoma State, USC and Washington State (and possibly some others).
