Russell made a commitment to ACC rival Miami in mid-February, shortly after picking up his offer from the Canes. That may be a tough pledge to shake, given not only the early stage at which he made it, but also the proximity to his home right in the metropolitan Miami area. He isn't 100% set on being a Cane, but Virginia Tech will have to fight hard to even convince him to visit, much less flip. One potential positive? He could see VT play right in his hometown this Fall.
