North Stafford’s Anthony Shegog commits to Virginia Tech

North Stafford junior defensive back Anthony Shegog announced Tuesday that he will be making a verbal commitment to Virginia Tech.

Virginia, West Virginia and East Carolina also had offered, and North Stafford Coach Joe Mangano said that other schools were showing strong interest.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Shegog, a first-team all-Virginia AAA Northwest Region pick, attended Tech’s junior day last month and was offered a scholarship there.

The Hokies project him as a safety, said Mangano, who played Shegog at six different positions and as a punt and kick returner last fall during the team’s run to the Division 5 semifinals.

Mangano said that Shegog has a 3.0 GPA and has qualifying SAT scores. Shegog will not turn 17 until the summer.

In a four-day span last month, Shegog picked up offers from Tech, Virginia and ECU and later added WVU.

Shegog’s sister, Chay, who attended Brooke Point, was a senior center on the North Carolina women’s basketball team this season. She was a second team all-ACC pick.
