On Thanksgiving, Liberty head football coach Turner Gill got a commitment from local defensive back product Chris Megginson from Heritage High School in Lynchburg, Virginia. Megginson chose Liberty over offers from Georgia State, VMI, Elon, and Western Illinois.

Megginson is the 8th verbal commit of the Class of 2019. The 6’0″, 180 pound prospect has also played wide receiver for Heritage, helping lead them to an 11-1 record this season. He joins Micah Glaize, a safety prospect from Brookville High School, as two local products to commit in the class.
