Bird’s Payne commits to Virginia Tech

BLACKSBURG – L.C. Bird High School rising senior Shawn Payne committed to play football at Virginia Tech on Monday, according to Payne’s Twitter account.
Just before 9:30 p.m., Payne tweeted, “Imma Hokie” and then tweeted “I JUST COMMITED TO TECH #hokies #hokies #hokies.”
Tech was apparently the only school to offer the 6-foot-3, 180-pound defensive back and wide receiver.
He is not rated as a prospect by either or 247sports.
