Throughout the season, there were recruiting trips, but Friendship Collegiate Academy (DC) 2015 cornerback Ashton White was focused on his season. But since his season ended last month, White has had plenty of thinking to do.

Tonight, White thought enough. He's given his commitment to Virginia Tech, choosing the Hokies over offers from Ohio State and Maryland and becoming the Hokies' second commitment for 2015.

"They've just been recruiting me for a long time," White said. "I love the school, I love the football program, the academic aspect of it. My family loves the school and Virginia Tech is a winning program. They have a long tradition, 20 straight bowl games, but this one against UCLA will make 21. The coaching staff is great. I love the coaching staff and they love me. They basically let me know I'm their top priority for defensive back in 2015. I feel like it's home."

White last visited Virginia Tech for the Hokies' game against North Carolina. He also took in games at Ohio State, Maryland, North Carolina and West Virginia, but White said he liked the atmosphere in Blacksburg best.

"I've been down there about three or four times and every time I'm down there, they just treat me like I'm home, the players, the coaches, even the fans," White said. "When I went down for the game against North Carolina, we were sitting there and even the fans were talking to me and my dad. They were just telling us about the school and telling us a bunch of great things."

White was recruited by assistant coaches Aaron Moorehead and Torrian Gray and joins four-star defensive end Michael Barnett as Virginia Tech's 2015 commitments thus far.
