Virginia, Virginia Tech each pick up commit

It’s rare for Frank Beamer to have to leave the state of Virginia to find good football players but he made an exception for strong-armed quarterback T.J. Millweard, a Fort Worth (Texas) product who became the third commitment for Virginia Tech’s class of 2012.

The 6-foot-5, 220 pound Millweard was receiving interest from Oklahoma, TCU, Missouri and others but the Hokies were the first to pull the trigger and offer a scholarship. He visited campus unofficially last weekend and decided to commit to the coaching staff shortly thereafter.

Millweard passed for 1,621 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior. He also rushed for 464 yards.

While Tech is sitting at three commitments for the upcoming class, in-state rival Virginia recently picked up their first commit for the class of 2012 in Virginia Beach (Vir.) athlete Mark Hall. A 6-foot-2, 210 pound linebacker, Hall could play a number of positions for the Cavaliers.
