The Hokies continue to have an eye on Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes offensive tackle Chaz Lowery. The 6-foot-5, 254-pounder was in town this past weekend for the Hokies win over Central Michigan. Is there any more clarity on his status with Tech?

"It went pretty well," he said. "I definitely enjoyed the weekend and it was a great game to be at.

"I didn't get to talk to Coach Newsome as much as I wished. It's hard on game day since they are very focused on the game and in tune with their players and getting them ready. I wanted to get a feel for where they stand, they are interested though."

What did the coaches say in his brief interactions?

"It was all brief, there was no time to sit down," he said. "I kind of got the feeling that they either hadn't gotten the tape or at least hadn't looked at it yet. They said they are going to sit down as a staff and review my film this week."

Meanwhile, Lowery was up for the game and gave his take.

"It was a great game, it was a beautiful weekend and it's always good to watch Marcus (Davis) out there since I played with him now that he's in such a big program, he did great," he said. "I watched the offensive line and they are a great cohesive unit. Coach Newsome does a great job with them. You can tell they are very well coached when you watch. He preaches what he wants and they moved together well as a cohesive unit."

The two-star prospect was joined on the trip by his mother as well as his sister who attends Virginia Tech.

From here, Lowery has more visits coming up.

"I'm going to East Carolina this weekend and I do plan to visit Duke at some point," he said. "I've been down there during the summer, but I want to see the game day atmosphere and interact with the players and coaches. I look forward to meeting with them again."
