Justin Taylor Commits to Virginia Tech
The Hokies received a bit of a surprise commitment on Wednesday as three star defensive end Justin Taylor decided to commit to Virginia Tech.
Taylor was scheduled to visit North Carolina State again this week but decided that Blacksburg was the place for him. Justin trimmed his list to just NC State and Virginia Tech back in early June.
The three star defensive end was very highly recruited even though he has only played one year of organized football. He held offers from Virginia Tech, NC State, Arkansas, East Carolina, Kentucky, and Auburn.
Taylor's head coach Luke Little touched on his talented defensive end
“Justin has only played football one year, but he is being looked at as a linebacker or quick end,” Little told the News Observer.
In Virginia Tech's system, Justin will more than likely be a defensive end and could play either the STUD or the weakside end position.
Taylor is the 11th commit of the Hokies 2010 recruiting class.
