"With VHSL moving all fall sports and having the football season in the spring, My family and I feel that it's best that I enroll into college in December !! This wasn't an easy decision but it will be best for my future," Asbury said on his Twitter account.
A defensive back, Asbury committed to Virginia Tech June 21. The Hokies offered the 5-10, 170-pound Asbury June 17.
