Emmanuel Belmar Jr. , 3* linebacker from Suwannee, Georgia, chose to commit to Virginia Tech earlier this afternoon.
Belmar has been high on the Hokies for quite awhile and was said to have been a longtime lean due to his connection with his primary recruiters Bud Foster and Torrian Gray. The 6-2, 220lbs linebacker has picked up a lot of interest recently, but felt comfortable in making his pledge to the Hokies and ending his recruitment. He chose the Hokies over Virginia, Syracuse, Colorado State and Old Dominion.
This commitment is the 12th overall commitment for the Hokies this recruiting cycle. Stay tuned to GobblerCountry as more good news is likely headed your way with 100+ prospects headed to Blacksburg this weekend for the Beamer Cookout.
