Reports: Ryan Malleck switches commitment
Ryan Malleck will play his college football in the ACC, but it won't be at Maryland.
The three-star tight end prospect from Point Pleasant Boro (N.J.) High has reportedly switched his commitment from the Terps to Virginia Tech.
He had been committed to Maryland since mid-August, but started to take a look at other schools when the Terrapins let former coach Ralph Friedgen go. Last weekend, Malleck visited Tech.
In addition to Tech and Maryland, Malleck considered scholarship offers from U.Va., Miami, Connecticut, Nebraska, North Carolina State, Rutgers, Central Florida and Vanderbilt, as well as appointments from Army and Navy. He's the 20th commitment for Tech's '11 class. Wednesday will be the first day recruits can sign a letter of intent with a university.
