"I had a good time on my visit there," he said. "I enjoyed eating out on campus and I got to hang out with some of the freshmen. I was hosted by Jason Worilds. He was a good guy.

"I also went around the campus and met with some of the business professors. I got to talk to Frank Beamer and the rest of the coaches too."

Virginia Tech is looking at the three-star prospect as a defensive tackle.

"I definitely would like to take three official visits, but I don't know if I'll go," he said. "I might make a decision pretty soon. I really don't know when it may happen."
