Virginia Tech Visits Reaffirm Peoples’ Decision

If there was ever any doubt about where Archbishop Wood Catholic (Pa.) three-star defensive back Nasir Peoples’ loyalty was, it might have been fully answered over the past month.

Peoples (6-0, 185) officially visited for Virginia Tech’s game against Clemson, then visited again, unofficially, on Oct. 21 for its win over North Carolina. Peoples committed to the Hokies in February, though others, including Notre Dame, came after him since.

Peoples,’s No. 26 player in Pennsylvania for 2018, hasn’t swayed from his decision. His visits have further validated his decision.

“I’m sticking with them,” Peoples said. “I love it and I’m not going to change. It’s just a better relationship every time I go down there. The coaches treat me like I’m part of the family, the players, too. I just love going down there.”
