Here are the details:
At a 1:00 p.m. press conference, Smithfield (VA) star rising senior Dyrell Roberts announced that he has verbally committed to Virginia Tech, choosing the Hokies over Penn State and the University of Virginia. The talented athlete, a versatile performer for Smithfield, becomes Tech's 16th commitment for the 2008 recruiting class.
The 6-2, 195-pound prospect, rated the #8 overall recruit in the state in TSL's Pre-Summer Top 30, is being recruited by Virginia Tech to play wide receiver. As a junior last season, he saw action at running back, wide receiver, cornerback, safety and returned kicks and punts.
Roberts rushed for 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns, hauled in 22 receptions, made 8 interceptions and returned two punts for touchdowns in his junior season. He earned first-team all-Central region honors at running back and defensive back and earned second-team all-state honors at defensive back.
With Roberts in the fold, Virginia Tech continues its dominance in the state in this 2008 recruiting class. Tech has now compiled 11 commitments from the Commonwealth including 10 from TSL's Top 30. Roberts is the first prospect from TSL's Top 10 to commit to the Hokies.
We will have comments from Roberts
in a later update.
