Recently, free agent quarterback Michael Vick signed with the New York Jets.

But, according to Vick, playing in New York would have been an option for him earlier than this season. In fact, he interacted with a fan on Twitter on Friday night to tell the fan that he would have went to college in upstate New York.

Vick went to Virginia Tech for three seasons; however, was just a member of the football team for two years.

He was a redshirt freshman during the 1998 season, then was the Hokies starter in 1999. In his first season as a starter, he guided Virginia Tech to the National Championship game against Florida State, before losing 46-29.

In 2000, he was also the starter, and helped the team to an 11-1 record. The Hokies would win the Gator Bowl over Clemson, 41-20, for Vick’s only Bowl victory at the school.

In his two years, he had 3,279 passing yards and 21 touchdowns. He also ran for 1,221 yards and 17 touchdowns.

His success at Virginia Tech helped him become the first African-American quarterback to be selected with the No. 1 overall pick by the Atlanta Falcons. He played six years with the Falcons, before being sent to prison after being charged with dog fighting.

He came back to the NFL in 2009 when he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. After spending five years with the Eagles, he will be entering his first year with the Jets during the 2014 season.
