We knew Malcolm Britt (2020 LB 6-1 215) would be a great catch for one college program. Malcolm has the discipline that suits a military academy. He has the academics for an Ivy League school. He has the athleticism that screams high level Division I prospect.
Malcolm announced a narrowed list of Temple, Army, Liberty and Old Dominion last week and proclaimed that he would make his college commitment on his 18th birthday. On June 1, he had a list of five schools as his top options. Air Force did not make the cut for the current list.
That day was Tuesday and through a video released to YouTube, Malcolm committed to Old Dominion.
There was no official statement with the video, only a few shots at the end of the video indicating his commitment to the Monarchs.
In a tweet prior to his commitment, Malcolm explained his motivations.
“As a young kid I wanted to be a D1 Football player. My dad told me get good grades and focus on the things I can control. On Tuesday the decision I make will be one that sets me up for life. Football will be the engine that fuels my future,” Britt said.
Malcolm’s offer list topped 20 schools, including James Madison, Navy, Hampton, Georgetown, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, Penn, Cornell, Fordham, Austin Peay and Yale.
Britt is the eighth commitment to Monarchs from the recruiting class of 2020, and the second commitment from the 757 following defensive end Amorie Morrison of Salem High School in Virginia Beach.
