Concord First Assembly's O'Donnell commits to Virginia Tech


O’Donnell commits to Virginia Tech

Concord First Assembly (CFA) junior wide receiver Conner O’Donnell verbally committed to play at Virginia Tech Friday night, according to his father Geoff O’Donnell.

O’Donnell was the first Virginia Tech commit for the class of 2016, giving his commitment to Virginia Tech assistant, Shane Beamer, also the son of Hokies’ head coach, Frank Beamer. He also had offers from UCLA, Mississippi State and Akron with interest from most of the schools in the ACC, Big 12, SEC and more.

O’Donnell recently transferred to CFA from SouthLake Christian where he played for the elder O’Donnell, helping the Eagles to a NCISAA Division III state championship last season.

O’Donnell had 48 catches for 1,308 yards (27 yards per catch) and eight touchdowns for SouthLake Christian last season earning all-state and all-Lake Norman News’ honors in the process.

Seen the kid play and not impressed at all. Very small and slow for his position plus playing against middle school teams don't help. A very long ways to signing day. As commits are none binding. Parents have to be a nervous wreck between now and signing time. If they can pull this off this just may be the biggest heist in college football recruiting history .

This is the exact evaluation of talent by a college staff that could get a entire college coaching staff fired. VT talent evaluation has been down in the last 5 years and is evident in the subpar seasons.

Watched him play against Victory twice last year and he was slow and not physical. He was not a factor at all in the 3 times we played them.
