Darden recaps VT visit, camp, what's next

Lat weekend, Houston athlete Jaelon Darden camped at Virginia Tech. He detailed the trip and where his recruitment is with TheVTZone.com.

There's been a multitude of camps this summer for Reagan (TX) athlete Jaelon Darden. And last weekend, he capped a busy summer with a cookout and camp at Virginia Tech.

Darden claims 14 offers to this point, including from the Hokies, Southern Miss, Memphis and UNLV. And his camp slate has included Alabama, TCU, Houston, Memphis and UNLV.

Virginia Tech has taken a few similar sized receivers to this point, including Sean Savoy and Kalil Pimpleton. But with a 4.45-second 40-yard dash, as he posted on Sunday, Darden could still be in the mix for the Hokies.

"Right now, they’re at the top of my list," Darden said. "I was asking Coach (Holmon) Wiggins, how would I be used here, a little jet sweep, stuff like that. So, I liked what I was hearing."

Darden said he still wants to visit Memphis again before the season and use an official visit on UNLV. He plans to release a top list of schools before his senior season begins.
