Gourdine talks with Hokies

Farmington, Mich., safety Isaiah Gourdine made a commitment to Cincinnati over the summer, but decommitted following the Bearcat's coaching change. He now has two official visits scheduled and is starting to hear from an ACC program.
"I have talked with Virginia Tech," Gourdine reported. "I actually went to their camp this summer and had a pretty good camp. They started talking to me then. I talked to the defensive backs coach and he said he is going to show the head coach my highlight tape this Thursday, then will call me and tell me what he's got for me."
Although now a resident of southeast Michigan, Gourdine has connections to the state of Virginia and strong interest in the Hokies' program.

"I am from Virginia," Gourdine said. "I was born in New Jersey, but I lived in Virginia for a long time, so I have strong interest in Virginia Tech."
Gourdine does have two official visits scheduled for the month of January - to Bowling Green this coming weekend and Old Dominion the weekend of Jan. 18.
Prior to his Cincinnati commitment Gourdine held offers from both Indiana and Iowa, but there has been minimal contact with those programs in recent weeks.
"Iowa came to my school two days after I decommitted, but I really haven't heard anything since," he said. "I haven't talked to Indiana at all."
Following his decommitment, the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Gourdine said Cincinnati is no longer under consideration in his recruitment.
