Dozier had a fairly decent junior campaign in Lynchburg, nothing jaw dropping but shows a lot of potential to improve and have a strong senior year where he can fine-tune his skills.

Here are some highlights:


Dozier looks quick, has a good nose for the ball, and looks to be a sure tackler who can make plays.

The Dozier commitment adds to the list of nothing but defensive players in Tech's 2015 recruiting class, which looks promising if the Hokies can get a couple of bigger names and add some talent to the offense.

If the Hokies can keep receiving commitments from players like Dozier and the guys listed, the class of 2015 should shape up to be a good one. Check back with Gobbler Country for more recruiting news and updates as the announcements become public.
