McCain visited Virginia Tech on Saturday and when he returned home, he knew he wanted to be a Hokie.
"I had been thinking about it since the day they offered me," said the 6-foot-2, 175-pound McCain.
"When I took the visit on Saturday, I felt it was the best place for me. It was my first time in Blacksburg – it was nice. They talked about their tradition and how they have high expectations – and I always like to be challenged."
Virginia Tech had everything McCain was looking for in a football program.
"They have a good program, great fans and Coach (Frank) Beamer and Coach (Bud) Foster are good coaches," he said. "I'm just really excited to have a chance to play up there and I feel really good about my decision."
As a junior, McCain registered 36 tackles, four interceptions (returned one for a touchdown), five pass breakups, and two forced fumbles.
