After being offered on December 3rd, three-star LB Eugene Asante shared on Twitter that he will be taking an official visit to Virginia Tech this weekend.
The three-star LB has seen his recruitment take off in recent weeks with public offers from Virginia Tech and TCU. In addition, 247 Sports
lists Asante as having an offer from Maryland, one that he hasn't reported as of yet.
This will be a busy official visit weekend for the Hokies with many of Virginia Tech's commits set to take their official visits to Blacksburg this weekend. With so many commits on campus, this weekend creates an opportunity for Asante to get to know the Hokies' incoming class, something that could prove very beneficial as the Hokies look to add him to that group.
It's unknown if Asante will decide to take more official visits or look to sign next week though if he does choose to sign next week,
