Virginia Tech defensive line target Brandon Dorlus (Deerfield Beach, FL) is set to make his college commitment.

According to the official Twitter account of his high school football program, Dorlus will make his college commitment on Thursday, August 2 at 6:30 PM on the Tony Sands Show.

The 6-foot 3-inch, 270-pound defensive lineman plans to make his college commitment between Clemson, Nebraska, Kentucky, Virginia Tech, and Florida.

Dorlus will make his decision fresh off a visit to Virginia Tech on Sunday.

“I loved the family atmosphere,” he said after his trip to Blacksburg.

Over the course of his recruitment, Dorlus received 26 verbal scholarship offers, receiving a tender from the Hokies defensive line coach Charley Wiles during the Spring Evaluation Period in May. Of his double-digit offers, Dorlus held notable tenders from programs such as Clemson, Auburn, Louisville, NC State, Pittsburgh, Ole Miss, and many others.

According to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite rankings, Dorlus is a three-star prospect and is listed as the No. 130 overall prospect in Florida.

Over the past weekend, the 247Sports Crystal Ball swung heavily in the favor of Virginia Tech.

If the 247Sports Crystal Ball is accurate, Dorlus would become the third defensive lineman out of Florida to pledge their commitment to Justin Fuente and Virginia Tech, joining Apopka (FL) Wekiva defensive tackle Norell Pollard and Kissimmee (FL) Osceola defensive tackle Mario Kendricks.

Both Pollard and Kendricks committed to Virginia Tech in June.

Virginia Tech currently holds 14 verbal commitments in the 2019 recruiting class, which ranks No. 26 nationally. The Hokies latest pledge, three-star running back Keshawn King out of Oak Leaf High School (Orange Park, FL), announced his commitment on Saturday.
