Jawand Blue picks Virginia Tech 

July, 6, 2011
Virginia Tech picked up its 15th commitment this morning when linebacker Jawand Blue (Boca Raton, Fla./West Boca Raton) revealed his intent to join the Hokies. Blue, 6-foot and 195 pounds, is a three-star recruit expected to play weakside linebacker in Blacksburg.

"They have just a great program with great coaches," Blue said. "Frank Beamer and Bud Foster have both been there forever and they get the job done. Beamer is a coaching legend. Coach [Charley]Wiles made me fall in love with that school. He just told me and showed me how badly they wanted me to be a part of their program."

Blue committed to the Hokies without ever taking a trip up to Blacksburg. That will change very soon.
