Looking to take two quarterbacks in its 2010 class, Virginia Tech is now halfway to its goal. H.D. Woodson (Washington, D.C.) signal caller Ricardo Young has committed to Virginia Tech, choosing the Hokies over offers from Central Florida, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Maryland, South Florida, Syracuse, Washington and West Virginia.
Young, who informed the Tech staff of his decision last Saturday, was scheduled to make the decision public tonight at the Big-Time Showcase Camp, which is being held at Rutgers University.
A 6-1, 170-pound signal caller, Young passed for 3,089 yards and 31 touchdowns with only five interceptions. The dual-threat style of quarterback the Tech coaching staff seems to favor, Young also rushed for 780 yards and 11 scores. He led his team to a 7-4 overall record and an all important Turkey Bowl win over rival Dunbar.
Young is one of six prospects that have committed to Tech's 2010 class, joining offensive linemen Caleb Farris and Mark Shuman, defensive linemen Nick Acree and Derrick “Skip” Hopkins and linebacker Tahrick Peak. Hopkins actually committed to Virginia Tech earlier today.
Stay tuned for more from Ricardo on his commitment to Tech.
