Here's a weird one for you: It looks like Delray Beach DE Kevin Bronson didn't have the grades to get into Virginia Tech, and instead is heading to USF. Considering USF is the same school that has been denying kids with its infamously difficult academic committee for years now, this is certainly a surprise.

This report out of ESPN West Palm (your home for the best polo and equestrian coverage!!) quotes Bronson's Delray Village Academy coach Don Hanna pretty specifically about Bronson's academic situation:

"After Signing Day, Virginia Tech said he'd need a 17 on all categories," said Hanna. "He ended up being a point shy on English and Math. We were told if he didn't get it, they'd go before the [academic] committee and they'd be able to get him in."

"The closer we got to him coming up, they started saying, 'There's a 50/50 chance we'll be able to get you up.' They were giving him the run-around."

"They didn't treat Kevin right from the beginning. He was like a second-tier guy for them. They missed out on some other defensive linemen and took a chance on Kevin. I don't think he would have had a great career there because he wasn't one of the guys they wanted."

After informing Bronson he was short of qualifying, Virginia Tech said they wouldn't be able to get him in asked if he would enroll in prep school during the fall. Following that discussion, Bronson requested for his scholarship release.

According to Hanna, the school made a sudden reversal as Hokies' head coach Frank Beamer then told Bronson he would go to the head of the academic committee and get him in.

By that point, Bronson and his family decided they were ready to move on.

"Once that happened, [Bronson and his father] came to the conclusion that they don't want to deal with that going forward."
Alrighty, then!

Bronson is a 3-star recruit according to 24/7 and Yahoo, and is somewhere between 6'3 and 6'4 and 233 and 252 lbs depending on who you believe.
