SOLON’S GREER to VIRGINIA

solon.pngAccording to a Plain Dealer blog, Solon LB Steve Greer has committed to the University of Virginia.

Greer spurned North Carolina (sorry, Butch) and Oklahoma State, which reportedly sent two coaches, head coach Mike Gundy (“I’m a man!”, remember?) and defensive coordinator Tim Beckman, out to NEO this week to make a final pitch.

He’ll stick to playing linebacker in the Cavaliers’ 3-4, but joins a crowd at the position. Last year Virginia coach Al Groh started a senior and three juniors, but had four redshirt freshmen behind them and recruited four more last year.

Greer was the Comets’ leading tackler each of the last two seasons. In 2007, he collected 125, including 25 for a loss. Solon finished 9-3 and reached the regional semifinals, losing to eventual state finalist Mentor.
