Looks like 4 star QB Marquise Williams has de-committed from UNC and committed to VTech according to sources, should be public soon.
It appears our boy Beer Control scooped everyone, but now even Rivals is reporting that Marquise Williams has ditched North Carolina for Virginia Tech. Williams, who is ranked as the No. 10 dual-threat quarterback in the country, originally committed to North Carolina back in July.
The senior from Mallard Creek High School in Charlotte, NC, is also ranked by Rivals as the No. 16 recruit in North Carolina. If the report is true, he would be the second quarterback to commit to Virginia Tech in the last two days. Lafonte Thorougood, a QB from Ocean Lakes High School in Virginia Beach, committed to the Hokies Saturday.
Williams' about-face would give the Hokies 16 commitments for their 2011 recruiting class. With a minimal number of scholarships at the Hokies disposal this year, you would figure they are close to filling out their class. That is, of course, assuming all 16 sign with them in February.
