Woodson's Redman expected to jump from Cavs to Hokies
H.D. Woodson senior tight end/linebacker Darius Redman, a second-team All-Met who had orally committed last summer to sign with Virginia, will now head to Virginia Tech.
According to a source close to Redman who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the decision has not been announced, Redman will commit to the Hokies later this week when assistant Kevin Sherman visits Woodson after Virginia Tech returns from the Orange Bowl.
Another source close to Redman said the 6-foot-4 235-pounder wanted to enroll at Virginia this month, but the school wanted him to wait until June. The source said Virginia assistant Shawn Moore visited Woodson last month and told Redman he needed to spend the spring semester trying to get a higher standardized test score. Redman has already satisfied NCAA initial-eligibility requirements. The source said that if Redman didn't get a higher score, he might have to go to a prep school next fall, which soured Redman on Virginia.
Then, the source said, Virginia Tech, which had been interested all along, moved in. The Hokies have already received a commitment from Redman's teammate Adeboye Aromire, a second-team All-Met defensive back, as Woodson won its third consecutive D.C. Interscholastic Athletic Association title.
