Only a rising junior who does not have to sign an official letter of intent until February of 2017, Stonewall Jackson (Manassas, VA) athlete Devante Smith certainly could have waited a while longer to make his college choice. The 6’1″, 185-pound prospect didn’t need more time, though, and so he verbally committed to Virginia Tech earlier this week.

“I felt comfortable being there and being around the coaches and I want to major in Engineering and they’re well known for that,” Smith said when asked why he committed to Virginia Tech.

“I started thinking about committing a few weeks ago. [Smith and his parents] were talking about it and they thought it would be good to get it done before the season started.”

Smith’s parents played high school sports, though neither moved on to play anything on the college level.
