Reports: West Boca Raton LB Jawand Blue commits to Virginia Tech 

By Jeff Greer

Multiple recruiting sites reported Wednesday that West Boca Raton linebacker Jawand Blue verbally committed to Virginia Tech.

Blue, one of the top linebackers in South Florida, will join former West Boca receiver Robert Lockhart and Atlantic defensive linemen Wedley Estime and Luther Maddy at Virginia Tech. Those three signed with Virginia Tech in February.

The 6-foot, 220-pound senior-to-be had verbal scholarship offers from some 15 schools, including Wisconsin, Pitt, Ole Miss, West Virginia and Illinois.

All commitments are non-binding until players sign with the school. The first day to do so is national signing day, which will be on Feb. 1, 2012.
