2011 National Signing Day: 3-Star WR Robert Lockhart Commits to Virginia Tech


Virginia Tech has picked up another commitment two days before National Signing Day, according to the Palm Beach Post:

Robert Lockhart rose as quickly as anyone in the recruiting ranks this winter. And on Monday, he ended a late-January recruiting frenzy for his services and picked his college.

Lockhart (6-1, 180, No. 36 on the Big Board) verbally committed to Virginia Tech, choosing the Hokies over Kansas State, Nebraska and Vanderbilt, among others.

Post writer Jeff Greer said Lockhart didn't play football as a junior to focus on basketball. A three-star prospect according to Rivals, he could be another diamond in the rough.

Lockhart was recruited by Torrian Gray, who has done a good job recruiting South Florida in recent years. The Lakeland native also helped sign Jayron Hosley and Dwight Tucker out of the Sunshine State.

In other recruiting news, the Spartanburg Herald Journal reports five-star linebacker Stephone Anthony has eliminated Florida from his choices. Anthony will announce his decision Wednesday at 11:30 a.m., reportedly on ESPNU. Anthony will choose between the Hokies, Clemson and UNC. Most recruitniks predict he'll be a Tiger.
