A 6-foot-1, 196-pound free safety from Midlothian, Fisher emerged on the summer camp circuit as a fast-riser, getting interest from Alabama. He’s ranked as the 36th best prospect nationally by 247Sports, 83rd by Rivals and 98th by ESPN.
He played in the Under-Armour All-America Game this yea and participated in the Gridiron Kings and The Opening. Fisher had 72 tackles, 11 tackles for a loss, five sacks, five forced fumbles and one interception in an injury-shortened season for Manchester High.
247Sports National Recruiting Director J.C. Shurburtt said Fisher is someone who could play right away.
“[He's] a big, versatile safety prospect, the type of player that fits into Virginia Tech’s defensive scheme perfectly,” Shurburtt said.
Fisher, who was among the first two players to commit to the Hokies last February, has told several recruiting sites he believes he’s on track to qualify academically.
