Izzard brings great size to the position at 6’3” and 246 pounds according to 247 Sports, and is one of the Hokies’ top defensive end targets in the 2020 class alongside guys like Tyler Baron, Bryan Breese, and Jacolbe Cowan.
Given that Virginia Tech is likely to take only one defensive end this cycle, it’s more likely that the Hokies will take 2 or 3 DEs in the 2020 class with Izzard being a high priority.
