Super Sleeper commits to East Coast
While the commitment is now open to the public, it is nothing new. In fact, he has been committed for quite some time.
"Virginia offered me on the last day of camp. All I had to do was get on the phone and call my mom, my dad, and my coach to make sure everything was alright to commit. I was committed basically that evening."
For three weeks, Deke held onto that fact, but now that he is open about everything, he admits that it is not only his talent that led Virginia to offer him.
"They like that I have played in the big games against the best of the best every week. We have great teams like Maiter Dei and Dematha and we were ranked as the number eight team in the nation ourselves, so I play in pressure-packed games and have the ability to lead a talented team."
While Deke admits that Virginia may look at another quarterback in a different mold for this season, he will not waiver on his commitment at all.
"No, I am not going to look at any other schools. I am finished with all of that."
