Derrick Nnadi is making progress with his recruitment. The four-star Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes defensive tackle had previously narrowed his list to five – Florida State, Ohio State, Penn State, Virginia and Virginia Tech. Now, Penn State is out and Ohio State is a longshot. According to sources, Virginia Tech and Florida State are the main contenders for Nnadi. The same source said Virginia still has a chance, but I do not think they are a serious player for the Ocean Lakes standout. He will take his official visit to Virginia Tech this weekend and Virginia on Jan. 31. A signing day decision seems likely and I would give the Hokies a slight edge at this time.
Earlier this week, it appeared that Donte Thomas-Williams could make his decision at any time. However, Vanderbilt's new staff is interested and was at his school today. Now, he will take an official visit to Nashville on Jan. 31. I still think West Virginia is the favorite, but Thomas-Williams will likely wait and make his decision on signing day.
Raymon Minor took an official visit to Marshall last weekend. Next, the four-star Richmond (Va.) Benedictine outside linebacker will head to Virginia Tech on Jan. 31. With that said, Minor is down to Virginia Tech, Nebraska, Miami and Marshall. Ultimately, I believe he will end up at Virginia Tech. It looks like he will also make his decision on signing day.
Melvin Holland is one of the hottest prospects in the Mid-Atlantic. The three-star Ashburn (Va.) Briar Woods wide receiver had a breakout senior season and is well into double-digit scholarship offers. He has already taken an official visit to Minnesota. Next, he will head to Wake Forest tomorrow and Rutgers on Jan. 31.
