Four-star ATH Minor picks VT

On National Signing Day, Virginia Tech received a commitment from four-star Raymon Minor. The athlete from Richmond (Va.) Benedictine strengthens an already strong Hokie recruiting class.
"The reason why I picked Virginia Tech is because every time I go there I feel like I'm on the team," said the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Minor. "I have a good relationship with the coaches and players."
Those relationships were the driving force behind Minor's commitment to Virginia Tech.
"I talk to Shane Beamer and Bud Foster a lot," he said, "They are always honest with me and stay in touch with me a lot. That's why I've built a good relationship with them.
"I know some of the players," Minor said. "I've known Nigel Williams, Charley Meyer, Trey Edmunds and some other guys on the team from when I've gone up there.
I talk with C.J. Reavis, Ricky Walker, Tabyus Taylor, Melvin Keihn and Andrew Ford," he said. "All of them were telling me to commit and join the family because we could go far."
One of Minor's most valuable traits is his versatility. He can play a number of positions on the offensive and defensive side of the ball.
"I'll play outside linebacker or a rover," said Minor. "They want me to come in and start my freshman year but if I'm not ready then I could redshirt."
Nebraska and Marshall were also under consideration by Minor. He said he was close with all of those coaches but felt closer with the coaches from Virginia Tech.
