"I really excited about being committed to Virginia Tech," Tayvion Land said. "I like a lot of the DBs that have gone there over the years. I also decided to stay home because I felt like it was best for me."
Land took a trip to Blacksburg recently.
"I visited a few weeks ago for the Boston College game and it's really like home," he said. "The coaches and players made me feel welcome. And they played well and got the win. I love the excitement on both sides of the ball, especially the defense."
The Bishop Sullivan standout has developed a strong relationship with Virginia Tech running backs coach Zohn Burden, who is recruiting him.
"We're real cool and he's from the 757 area, so we have that good connection," said the 5-foot-8, 165-pound Land. "I call him every week and he's always telling me about how well the defense is playing and how well the program is doing."
He is looking forward to playing for head coach Justin Fuente.
"I'm very excited," Land said. "He's come in and immediately started winning games. He's a very good coach and is doing a great job with the program."
Land emphasized that he is 100 percent committed to Virginia Tech and that his main focus is having a strong finish to the season.
"I completely done with the recruiting process," he said. "We're focused on going 1-0 every week. It's going to take a lot of hard work."
Bishop Sullivan is 3-2 and continues their season tonight on the road against Charlotte (N.C.) Providence Day at 7:30 p.m.
