NC safety interested in following Oglesby

Last Saturday Garner, N.C. running back Josh Oglesby committed to Virginia Tech. Many feel his decision could have a direct impact on Rivals100 safety and teammate Chris Culliver who may very well follow Oglesby to college.

I can say that Josh's decision definitely impacts me because he's my teammate and friend and we grew up around each other.

"I like more about Tech than just that though. I really like the success they've had the last few years. They always have a good record and go to bowl games.
