Edmunds is a Hokie… again! That’s right, Trey and Terrell’s baby brother, Tremaine, has committed to the good guys making a complete set of Edmunds brothers. Virginia Tech was in a close battle with ACC-defector Maryland, Wake Forest, and USC but ultimately won out in the end. Terrell’s commitment to VT adds to an already strong legacy of siblings playing together for Virginia Tech joining the company of Xavier and Nathaniel Adibi, Derrick and Antoine Hopkins, Michael and Marcus, The Fuller bros of course, etc. You get the picture, A LOT. This trend is one for the Hokies to be proud of and really demonstrates the fact that we do it right and that Virginia Tech truly is a family (even in the literal sense of the word).
Enough about that, let’s talk turkey.
Tremaine Edmunds is a 3-star OLB from, you guessed it, Dan River with a solid offer sheet that includes UNC, Cincinnati, and USC. Ultimately though, it was the Hokies that will have the benefit of Tremaine’s athletic services for the next 4 years. Listed at 6’ 3”, 200 lb Edmunds is every bit as athletic as his brothers and, while listed as an OLB, has a bit of flexibility in where he could be slotted for the Hokies. Edmunds brings the 2015 class to 10, 9 of which are slotted to play on the defensive side of the ball. This is in stark contrast to the 2014 class in which the Hokies benefited from a huge influx of offensive talent. So needless to say, we know good ol’ Bud is gettin’ his players. As I mentioned before, Tremaine is flexible and may play as a 6’3″-6’4″ OLB or possibly with his hand in the dirt. Hell, he may even switch to offense. With his athletic potential there are many options available for Tremaine and surely he will find his slot where he’s best suited for success. Tremaine also caps off a big recruiting month of July and gets us ready for what’s shaping up to be a big month of August recruiting.
Tremaine has been a member of the Hokie Nation for a couple years and now it is official. Welcome, Tremaine. You have officially been graced with a Drunken Gobbler Welcome.
As usual, thanks for reading y’all.
