Va. Tech adds three-star walk-on receiver

Three-star receiver Austin Jones (Cincinnati/Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy) committed to Virginia Tech as a walk-on Tuesday.

Jones was considering walking on at Illinois and Michigan State as well.

"Great academics," Jones said when giving the reasons for choosing Virginia Tech. "I like the coaches, and I have always wanted to play football down south."

Jones registered a 1,000-yard season as a junior before a shaky quarterback situation hurt his numbers as a senior.
