Suspended from school, Manchester linebacker Holland Fisher chose to sign his national letter of intent to Virginia Tech from home Wednesday.
It was also the final day of his 10-day suspension, which was given after he got in an argument with a teacher, Fisher said. He declined to give further details. While he could have opted to have his signing ceremony at school, he chose to stay at home.
“I wanted to have it at home with my family,” Fisher said.
Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer didn’t seem troubled by the events.
“Holland’s got to learn from the situation, and I think he has,” Beamer said. “I think it’s been resolved.”
Fisher was among the area’s most recruited players. After committing to Virginia Tech in early 2012, he was offered by Ohio State and Alabama. Ultimately, he stuck with his decision to become a Hokie.
Manchester coach Tom Hall said he hopes Fisher is able to clean up his off-the-field issues at Virginia Tech.
“The kid has a bright future,” Hall said.
