Since the dead period ended at the beginning of June and schools could host recruits on campus again, it’s been busy around college football.
It’s been particularly busy for the Virginia Tech Hokies, who have received 13 commitments since June 2. Just last week, the Hokies landed their biggest when four-star running back Ramon Brown chose Virginia Tech.
Next up is defensive end Bryson Jennings, who is announcing his commitment on Thursday, July 15 at 7 p.m. ET.
Committing July 15 @ 7pm tune in ‼️— ☠︎︎ ☠︎︎ (@espn_Jennings18) July 14, 2021
The 6-foot-6, 215-pound defensive end from Clover Hill High School in Midlothian, Virginia, is likely choosing between the Hokies and the Tar Heels.
Jennings, of course, is the son of former Virginia Tech tight end Bryan Jennings. He named a top-five in June, but his decision will focus on his two finalists.
While the Hokies have been hot on the recruiting trail, and there is reason for optimism, things like this usually don’t go Virginia Tech’s way.
Brian Dohn of 247Sports put in a crystal ball pick for the Tar Heels on Thursday. When the crystal balls start rolling in on the eve of a player’s commitment, then that’s almost certainly where the player will land.
But, it’s not a done deal, and having a father who played for the Hokies is a big deal.
Regardless of who Jennings picks, let’s not criticize the young man for the decision that he feels is best for him.
