SG Robert Brown, LB Dominique Patterson Commit to Virginia Tech
by Chris Coleman,

Monday was a good day for Virginia Tech, as the Hokies received a verbal commitment in both football and basketball. Both players received their scholarship offers after performing well at recent camps at Tech.

Last week, the Hokies likely finished off their 2010 recruiting class with the commitment of point guard Ty Garland. On Monday, they received their first verbal from a 2011 player. Robert Brown is a 6-4, 170-lbs wing guard from Clermont, FL. He averaged 20 points per game and shot 45% from three-point range as a sophomore at East Ridge High School while playing for Showtime Ballers AAU team.

Brown attended Virginia Tech's elite camp last month and he walked away with a scholarship offer. He has been very close to a commitment since then, and he finally pulled the trigger on Monday. Brown is rated the #81 overall prospect in the Class of 2011 by, and the #3 overall player in the state of Florida.

Brown had received interest from "all of the Florida schools", as well as Oklahoma and Notre Dame, according to his coach.

On Monday night, the football program also got a commitment when Kings Fork High School (Suffolk, VA) linebacker Dominique Patterson announced his decision. Patterson, at 6-1, 205, is projected to play either backer or whip at Virginia Tech.

The Hokies liked what they saw from Patterson on film, and when he posted a 4.48 in the 40 yard dash at Tech's recruiting camp in Blacksburg on Saturday, they didn't hesitate to extend the scholarship offer.

Despite playing with a broken hand last season, Patterson made over 60 tackles and led his team in sacks. He specialized as an edge rusher in a 3-5-3 defensive scheme.
