Going into his official visit with Virginia Tech on June 21, Green Run (Va.) defensive end Zeke Chinwike was pretty sure where he wanted to go to college.

He made his commitment to the Hokies on June 25, but it was one moment on day two of his official visit that sold it. From a short distance, Chinwike said he watched his dad and sister sing New Edition in karaoke with other recruits and Virginia Tech coaches.

“After I saw my dad smile, I knew this was it,” Chinwike said. “He’s a very stubborn dude. But then, when he smiled, I was like, this is it. He doesn’t like stuff. He’s really petty and stubborn sometimes. But when he was dancing and stuff at karaoke, I was like, ‘he’s going to like this.’ Then, all the players and recruits were bonding, talking, and I knew it was a good brotherhood.”
