Woodson DB picks Virginia Tech

Adeboye Aromire had pretty much decided in April that he wanted to go Virginia Tech. On Friday, the H.D. Woodson rising senior cornerback phoned Hokies assistant coach Kevin Sherman and committed to Virginia Tech, sending another of the Washington area's top players to Blacksburg.

"I really had them solid," said Aromire, who is 6 feet and 185 pounds. "I was down to my top five between West Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, V-Tech and Buffalo. V-Tech always stood out for me. They were the first team to get in contact with me, the first school to come in and get my tape, the first school to offer.

"After I went to the spring game, everything was cemented. ... It look like an NFL game and it was just a spring game. V-Tech is 3 ½ hours away from D.C. They were the No. 5 team in the nation last year. And they have a history of sending d-backs to the league."

Sounds like that might have been Sherman's recruiting pitch? Also, Aromire noted, with former Gwynn Park standout Rashad Carmichael set to complete his eligibility in 2010, a starting position will be open.

"I talked to Coach [Frank] Beamer for a second," Aromire said. "He said he was going golfing in Georgia this weekend and now he said he can go golf with a smile. That meant a lot to me."

Aromire said he plans to graduate in December and enroll at Virginia Tech for the 2011 spring semester.

Woodson's other standout cornerback, Sherrard Harrington, holds scholarship offers from Duke, Brigham Young, Ohio, Marshall and Tulsa.
