Virginia Tech’s recent roll of securing commitments continued Tuesday when Dinwiddie (Va.) High’s Corey Marshall became the fourth pledge in a week, and the second from his school in as many days.
The 6-foot-1, 260-pound Marshall announced minutes ago he was joining teammate Chris Hall in Blacksburg, Va. Marshall, the 18th-rated defensive tackle in the nation by Scout.com, is the sixth member of the Hokies’ 2011 class.
He made 110 tackles and had seven sacks as a junior at Dinwiddie. That came on the heels of a breakout sophomore season in which he made 115 tackles and made 11 sacks.
It completes a wonderful eight-day period for the Hokies in which tight end Christian Reeves of Eagle Landing Academy (McDonough, Ga.), cornerback Adeboye Aromire of Woodson High (Washington, D.C.) and Hall, who plays quarterback at Dinwiddie but will be a tight end at Virginia Tech, each committed to the Hokies.
Marshall’s announcement ceremony is wrapping up, and VTInsider.com is scheduled to speak with him shortly about his decision.
