(WSLS): Dan River’s Tremaine Edmunds is headed to Virginia Tech. Rockbridge County’s Austin Clark settled on Virginia Tech after first choosing South Carolina. Salem’s Coleman Fox is headed to the Hokies. An Altavista Star Juan Thornhill will be headed to UVA. The next addition to the southwest Virginia Division I “Brady Bunch” is none other than Warren Craft. The William Fleming senior wide receiver has committed to play for UVA and Coach Mike London after plans to play for the Hokies basketball team were shot down– Craft landed on his feet in Charlottesville.
“I just stayed calm being that I was a basketball player I still am a basketball player. I’m just an athlete I’ll adjust it won’t be a problem, ” says the UVA commit.
“Coming from basketball and football I don’t think it’ll be a problem. I think you could play baseball and run track too, he’s just a gifted athlete, “says his William Fleming basketball coach, Mickey Hardy.
And as a gifted athlete with many years of hoops under his belt, Craft tells us that he may have an option to suit up in John Paul Jones Arena for Coach Bennett. But he is not decided if he will exercise that option yet.
“It’s a blessing to be able to have the opportunity to play in the ACC against the best of the best I’ll take it as a blessing,” says Craft.
With his college hoops career in the air and his football future in full view he still has the season to make the most of his 4-year Fleming basketball career.
“I’m just going out with a bang enjoying the time of my teammates. You never know this could be the last time I get to play on the hardwoods. I’m just going to go out there give it my best effort and have fun,” says Craft.
