ATH Joel Caleb to sign with Virginia Tech

Posted by Chip Patterson


Wide receiver Joel Caleb, the No. 6 athlete (No. 46 overall prospect) in the 2012 class, has committed to Virginia Tech over West Virginia and Ohio State.

Caleb was a dual-threat quarterback and defensive back at Clover Hill (Midlothian, Va.), throwing for 747 yards and rushing for 737 in a senior season shortened by injury.  He is expected to play wide receiver for the Hokies, and is one of Virginia Tech's top ranked commits in the 2012 class. 

Virginia Tech had a few top prospects left uncommitted heading into National Signing Day, and Caleb was at the top of the wish list. As of his commitment, the Hokies have the No. 17 recruiting class in the CBS Sports National Signing Day Top 25.

Chance Allen chooses Oregon over Oklahoma State

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Wide receiver Chance Allen of Missouri City, Texas had originally given his verbal to Oklahoma State, but on Wednesday he signed his letter of intent to play at Oregon.

Allen will provide the Ducks with a big target, as he checks in at 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds. According to MaxPreps' Tom Lemming, Allen is "a dominating red-zone receiver, he runs great routes, knows how to get open, and is as sure handed as they come." 

Allen becomes the 20th commitment in Oregon's class, and the second receiver to commit to the Ducks, along with Dwayne Stanford.

Virginia DT Korren Kirven picks Alabama

Posted by Chip Patterson

Alabama added more beef to their 2012 class early on National Signing Day when Korren Kirven picked the Tide over in-state favorite Virginia Tech.

Kirven had also considered Maryland and Tennessee before narrowing his choices and announcing and making his announcement on Wednesday at Brookville High in Lynchburg.

The 6-foot-3, 270 pound defensive tackle attends the same high school as current Hokies quarterback Logan Thomas and defensive end Zack McCray, but chose to commit to Nick Saban and the defending national champions.

Kirven is considered a top defensive end prospect by MaxPreps.com's Tom Lemming, and adds plenty of depth to an already healthy Crimson Tide recruiting class. The announcement is a much bigger blow to the Hokies, who had Kirven as one of their last big prospects yet to commit.

For more on Kirven check out Crimson Tide RapidReports and the SEC Eye On Recruiting. Keep up with all the latest announcements around the nation throughout the day at Signing Day Central.

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Defensive tackle Edmund Ray had originally given his commitment to Missouri, but nothing is official until a player signs his letter of intent on National Signing Day, and when Ray signed his on Wednesday morning it wasn't directed to Mizzou. Instead Ray commited to Texas A&M.

The St. Louis product is 6-foot-5 and 290 pounds, and though he played both defensive tackle and defensive end in high school, he's projected to play defensive tackle in college.

Ray becomes the sixth player to sign a letter of intent with the Aggies in 2012.

Michael Onuoha chooses Oklahoma

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Defensive end Michael Onuoha put an end to any speculation about where he'd be commiting to on Wednesday when he tweeted "Boomer Sooner." 

The Oklahoma native told SoonerScoop.com that staying close to home played a big factor in his decision.

"I just took it upon myself, I sat down, thought about it, I prayed about it, I talked to my parents, and I can't even go into all that I went over. Ultimately I made my decision on where I should go," said Onuoha. "I made my decision on how far Missouri is from Oklahoma and family always come first for me. I don't want to be all the way in Missouri because if anything happens I want my family to have my back.

"I just felt like Oklahoma was the best place for me." 

The three-star defensive end checks in at 6-foot-7, 225 pounds. He becomes the 22nd commitment in Oklahoma's class, and the third defensive end.
