After visiting Virginia Tech this past weekend, news broke earlier today that three-star DL Brandon Dorlus will announce his collegiate commitment tomorrow evening. The Deerfield Beach, FL defensive lineman will choose between Virginia Tech, Clemson, Nebraska, Kentucky, and Florida; and announce his decision at 6:30pm on the Tony Sands Show. The Hokies are considered the favorites in his recruitment coming off his visit to Blacksburg. If Dorlus does choose the Hokies, he would be the fourth commit from Florida and third FL defensive line commit in VT's 2019 class. The Hokies have plenty of need at the defensive tackle spot especially after the surprising departure of Cam Goode. However, the Hokies have done well at making the position a priority in this recruiting cycle and gaining commitments from two of their top targets earlier this summer in Mario Kendricks and Norell Pollard.
