Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep athlete Brandon Napoleon took an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech for the Hokies' spring game over the weekend and came away feeling "overwhelmed".
That's saying something, because Napoleon had very high expectations going into the trip.
The 6-foot, 175-pound athlete said Virginia Tech was his "dream school" growing up so this was obviously a trip he was looking forward to.

"It was great," Napoleon said of Tech. "I had a great time seeing the school. It's a very nice campus and the spring game was fun. It was my first time down there."
Was it different than he expected?
"Yes it was," he admitted. "It was so beautiful. I didn't know it was like that. It was very overwhelming for me."
Napoleon got a lot of attention from the coaching staff, even though he hasn't received an offer from the Hokies.
"I was one of three (prospects) who got a personal tour. I got to sit down and talk with coach (Frank) Beamer. He said he could see me on defense. I think they might offer at the camp. They could want me to play quarterback, corner or safety."
Napoleon will be at Rutgers' spring game on Saturday. Next month he will be at Indiana and Michigan.
