I’m at the beach this weekend, verbally committing to drinking a margarita, so I missed Virginia Tech’s one-day summer prospect camp today.
Several outlets — the Washington Post, Richmond Times-Dispatch, VTscoop.com, HokieHaven.com and TechSideline.com to name a few — were out there and reported the news of these commitments this afternoon.
Chung, a 6-foot-4, 255-pounder from Ponte Vedra (Fla.) High, is the son of former Hokies All-American Eugene Chung (1988-91), a standout tackle who would later play six years in the NFL with the Patriots, Jaguars and Colts.
Kyle, who some think could also transition to tackle, is a three-star recruit according to Rivals and 247 Sports. The latter lists him as the No. 22 tight end nationally.
He picked Tech over more than a dozen offers, including Miami and Arkansas. Defensive line coach Charley Wiles was his primary recruiter.
Facyson, a 6-foot-2, 182-pound two-way player from Newnan, Ga., committed a few hours later.
He’s a three-star recruit who 247 Sports and Rivals rank as the 41st and 45th best cornerback nationally, respectively. His other finalists were Georgia Tech and Wake Forest.
Facyson played both ways for Northgate High last year, earning all-county honors at receiver (18 catches, 294 yards, 4 TDs) and all-region honors at defensive back (47 tackles, 3 interceptions).
Cornerbacks coach Torrian Gray was his primary recruiter.
Chung is the Hokies’ first commitment this year from Florida, while Facyson is the first from Georgia.
