Hokies Nab Robinson Linebacker
Robinson linebacker Brian Laiti on Friday morning committed to play for Virginia Tech, Rams Coach Mark Bendorf called to report. Laiti, a 6-foot-3 ½, 210-pound rising senior, picked the Hokies over Maryland, West Virginia, Boston College and Syracuse.
"He had a conversation with Coach [Frank] Beamer this morning and he committed," Bendorf said. "Talking to him, and listening to him this morning, [it was important that Tech] offered him after his sophomore year. He's been down there three or four times. And the defensive coordinator and linebacker coach, Coach [Bud] Foster, also recruited him. It's always nice when your position coach recruits you.
"The success they've had as a program speaks for itself, but their success as a defense was a big factor. The last two years, how they recruited him, came together for him. Coming into his senior year, he wanted to not have it hanging on his head - have a good seas for Robinson, not worry about where he was going to go next year."
Earlier this week, Riverdale Baptist defensive back Brian Burns committed to play for Temple.
