Recruiting bits: Hokies land coveted DL
By Adam Rittenberg
A few ACC recruiting nuggets for you on a gorgeous Monday afternoon, at least where I live.
- Virginia Tech bolstered its defensive line with a commitment Monday from Kris Harley, an ESPNU 150 Watch List selection from Indianapolis. Harley recorded 91 tackles, including 19 for loss and five sacks as a junior at Warren Central High School, the alma mater of Hokies standout running back Darren Evans. Harley had received offers from USC, Michigan, Nebraska, North Carolina, Iowa, Oklahoma and Wake Forest, among others. Harley's high school coach has some high praise for the standout lineman.
- Wake Forest recently added a pair of offensive tackles to its 2011 recruiting class. Dylan Intemann and Hunter Goodwin committed to play for the Demon Deacons. Intemann had received an offer from NC State, while Goodwin picked Wake over Maryland and West Virginia.
