CBs DuWayne Johnson, Mook Reynolds commit to Virginia Tech Hokies


The Virginia Tech Hokies always produce excellent players in the secondary.

Whether it’s Kam Chancellor, DeAngelo Hall or Brandon Flowers, it seems to be a spot where there is always a wealth of talent.

The Hokies may have taken a step towards adding two more to that long line of successful defensive backs over the weekend.

On Saturday, 3-star cornerback DuWayne Johnson gave his pledge to the Hokies.

The 6’1, 160-pounder who hails from Washington, D.C., is considered the 49th best cornerback prospect and 579th best overall prospect in the class of 2014.

“The coaching staff there was a big part of me committing yesterday during the junior day,” Johnson told Evan G. Watkins of VTScoop.com. “The position coach, Coach Torrian Gray, and my recruiting coach, Coach Aaron Moorehead, along with Head Coach Frank Beamer and Defensive Coordinator Bud Foster, they were a big part of me committing. Coach Gray, he pulled me to the side and wanted to talk. He told me that he was going to be a tough coach but he was going to better me. He showed me all of the DB’s over the years and he said that they may have some leave early. They call it DBU.”

A day later, Mook Reynolds, who attends Northern Guilford High School in Greensboro, North Carolina made his commitment.

The 5’11, 170-pounder is not yet rated.
