Virginia Tech Hokies

Lafayette's Grimsley commits to Hokies

Lafayette's Grimsley commits to Hokies

Lafayette junior Hezekiah Grimsley verbally committed Thursday to play football for Virginia Tech and new head coach Justin Fuente.

Grimsley had 38 catches for 1,065 yards and 13 touchdowns for Lafayette as a junior last fall.

Other schools in on the 6-foot-1, 180-pound receiver include Old Dominion, Coastal Carolina, East Carolina, Syracuse, Maryland, Iowa State and Marshall.

That would eventually make two Rams in the ACC if Grimsley signs. Lafayette senior Cheyton Pine will play for Pitt in the fall.

Grimsley would join Williamsburg's Parker Osterloh (Warhill) and Dalton Roe (Jamestown) on Tech's roster. Both are redshirt juniors.
