Tremaine Edmunds has chosen to stay in-state and will play his college football at Virginia Tech, the prospect announced Thursday night. The 6’3", 200 pound outside linebacker was considering Maryland, but in the end chose to stay closer to home.
Edmunds hails from Ringgold, Virginia and is a rising senior at Dan River High School. He is a three-star, according to 247Sports composite. In addition, he is ranked the 29th best outside linebacker in the class of 2015 and the 15th best overall player in Virginia. Other than Virginia Tech and Maryland, Edmunds was also considering USC, Wake Forest, Cincinnati, North Carolina, East Carolina and Kentucky.
Edmunds father, Ferrell, played tight end at Maryland from 1984-1987. This family link didn’t bring his son to College Park and also didn’t bring Edmunds’ brothers, Trey and Terrell, to Maryland either. Trey is currently a running back for Virginia Tech and Terrell is a class of 2014 commit for the Hokies, so Tremaine has decided to play with his brothers instead of attend his father’s alma mater.
