Virginia Tech football: Top QB target to announce college decision Sunday

The Virginia Tech Hokies could end this weekend with another big football commitment. On Sunday, quarterback AJ Brand is set to announce his college decision, which will be between South Carolina and Virginia Tech.

Brand, a 6-foot-2, 204-pound dual-threat passer from Irmo High School from just outside Columbia, South Carolina, is listed as an athlete with 247Sports, but several schools, including the Hokies, see Brand as a quarterback.

Brand passed for over 2,900 with 45 touchdowns last season and rushed for over 1,100 yards. He was one of the state’s top players.

The Gamecocks, who have been a thorn in the side of the Hokies this recruiting period, aren’t recruiting Brand as a quarterback, which could benefit Virginia Tech.
