Junior athlete Noah Brown of Sparta (N.J.) Pope John had three offers coming into this week, and on Tuesday he added a fourth. Virginia Tech became the second ACC school to offer Brown, but they may be joined by several other schools in the near future.
"Virginia Tech game up to my school yesterday and hung around for my basketball game," said Brown, who is 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds. "My coach told me after my game that they offered me."
Brown shared his thoughts about his newest offer.

"It's definitely exciting," he said. "Virginia Tech is a program known for winning and are always considered one of the higher level teams in the country. For them to offer me is a great reward for the hard work I've been putting in."
Brown held previous offers from Boston College, Rutgers and Temple, and a number of schools have stopped by Pope John to check on him in recent weeks.
"Duke, Maryland, Penn State, Georgia Tech, Rutgers, Boston College, and Michigan is stopping by tomorrow," said Brown, who is excited about all of the interest he has been receiving. "It feels good. It shows me that I have a lot to work for and it shows that the work I have been putting in is paying off."
Currently, there are no set dates for upcoming visits, but Brown has a few in mind that he would like to take in the coming months.
"Penn State, Maryland, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and some others are all schools I would be interested in visiting," said Brown.
Part of the interest that he is currently receiving comes from his impressive junior season.
"I felt I performed pretty well," said Brown. "I was able to go over 1,500 all-purpose yards with 24 touchdowns. I believe I had 647 yards receiving and about 900 yards rushing."
