The Virginia Tech Hokies have received yet another verbal commitment, finishing one of the most productive weeks in their recruiting history.
"I committed to Virginia Tech today," said Clifton (Va.) Centreville linebacker Brett Warren, whose older brother Blake currently plays for the Hokies. "They called and told me they were running out of scholarships for this year and that I didn't have much time. I knew that's where I wanted to go in my heart so I jumped on board."
Warren, a 6-foot-2, 210-pounder with 4.7-second speed in the 40-yard dash, chose the Hokies over offers from Marshall and Richmond and interest from Pitt.
"My brother playing there was actually kind of a drawback because I didn't really want to follow him or compete against him," he said. "But I really liked the coaches there and my teammate, Matt Welsh, was constantly working on me to commit. Tech has great facitilies and I know they'll make me the best player I can become."
There was some talk of Warren enrolling at Tech in January of 2004.
"That's what's going to happen," he said. "I have a late birthdate and they wanted to give me some extra time to get bigger, stronger and mature a little bit. I'll take next Fall to work out all the time."
