Virginia Tech has added to its history of brother combos. The Hokies got a 2014 commitment from Danville defensive back Terrell Edmunds of Dan River High, according to Roanoke Times recruiting expert Doug Doughty.
Edmunds is the younger brother of Hokies running back Trey Edmunds. Their father, Ferrell Edmunds, is a former NFL tight end who is now the head coach at Dan River High.
Terrell, who is 6-foot-1, 180 pounds, is an under-the-radar recruit. He’s not ranked by Rivals and did not even have a 247 Sports profile earlier today.
He was a second-team Group A Division 2 all-state pick last year as a junior at defensive back, although he also played quarterback and wide receiver for the Wildcats. Rivals lists him as a defensive back.
According to Rivals, he also had offers from Cincinnati and Hampton. Bryan Stinespring was Edmunds’ primary recruiter.
The Hokies have a long history of recruiting within the same family at Tech. The 2014 roster will feature two pairs of brothers — defensive backs Kyle and Kendall Fuller and linebackers Ronny and Devin Vandyke.
Edmunds is the Hokies’ seventh commitment for 2014. Here is an updated list:
- TE Xavier Burke, 6-3, 247, Lawrenceville (Brunswick)
- DB Terrell Edmunds, 6-1, 180, Danville (Dan River)
- DB Javon Harrison, 6-2, 190, Lakeland, Fla. (Kathleen)
- DB Kalen McCain, 6-1, 175, Durham, N.C. (Hillside)
- DB C.J. Reavis, 6-0, 199, Chester (Thomas Dale)
- DE Vincent Mihota, 6-4, 240, Fredericksburg (Massaponax)
- RB Marshawn Williams, 5-11, 200, Hampton (Hampton)
