Virginia Tech has rescinded its scholarship offer to Mario Nixon, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound defensive back from Norfolk Christian Academy who committed to the Hokies on May 15.
Tech’s decision follows Nixon’s trip to Charlottesville with three of his teammates who had committed to Virginia — Wil Wahee, Kwontie Moore and Courtnye Wynn.
My research indicates that they the Hokies were mostly upset that they were not made aware of the trip, not that they would have approved of it.
In any case, with Tech no longer involved, Virginia looms for the frontrunner for Nixon. He is rated the No. 16 prospect in Virginia by rivals.com.
