Three-star OL Moritz Schmoranzer from Germany via Roanoke's North Cross School is getting to set make his collegiate decision this Friday between Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. With his family in the US from Germany, Schmoranzer took a pair of visits last week to the Hokies and Demon Deacons with his trip Blacksburg coming after his trip to Winston-Salem.
So how was his VT visit?
Schmoranzer told us that it was a "pretty good" visit adding this about why that was the case.
"It was my first time seeing the campus and for my parents, their first time seeing everything," Schmoranzer said.
In addition to spending time touring Virginia Tech's campus and football facilities, Schmoranzer and his parents got to spend some time with Hokies head coach Brent Pry. He had this to say about how his time and conversations with Pry went.
"It was pretty good, him meeting my parents. They liked him," Schmoranzer said.
Getting that face time with Brent Pry right before his decision seems like a strong indication on how high he is on Tech’s interior offensive line board this cycle. Getting this meeting with Pry with his parents may have been valuable in part because of how Pry has gotten to oversee the collegiate transition of another German offensive lineman who came out of North Cross in 2022 three-star OT Hannes Hammer who enrolled this spring.
So how did this visit impact his recruitment and where VT stands in it?
"It definitely made the decision harder, it's too close to tell you," Schmoranzer said adding his plans to visit Friday.
The final visits for Virginia Tech and Wake Forest are now done so the question now is where will Schmoranzer go? Well we don't have that answer, but Schmoranzer did share the key factors in his decision with us.
"The team that feels like a family to me, and has great player and individual development," Schmoranzer said.
Moritz Schmoranzer's decision is days away with Virginia Tech making their final push to beat out Wake Forest for his commitment.
