One of Virginia Tech's top overall targets for the 2026 class is four-star QB Noah Grubbs. The talented Floridian has visited Blacksburg multiple times including most recently for the Hokies' season opener vs ODU with that visit going quite well as he shared with us.
"It was awesome. I loved my time at VT. The atmosphere was crazy, I've never been apart of anything like that before," Grubbs said.
He had this to say about what he did during his visit to Virginia Tech.
"I met with all the coaches, spent some time with some of the other commitments and was able to get on the field and experience the craziest game I’ve ever been too," Grubbs said.
Grubbs added that he spent the most time with offensive coordinator/QBs coach Tyler Bowen and offensive analyst Brian Crist during his visit. He had this to say about his time and conversations with Bowen.
"It was really great! He just told me that he sees me fitting in perfectly with what he likes to do offensively," Grubbs said.
He had this to say about his time and conversations with offensive analyst Brian Crist who he has built a very strong relationship with.
"I love that man! He’s honestly the reason why Virginia Tech is one of my top schools. We just talk about life outside of football and he is honestly one of the coolest and realest coaches I’ve ever talked to. I love that man," Grubbs said.
Crist has done a ton of work on the relationship-building front both with Tech's QB targets and with their trainers opening some doors for the Hokies with some big time talents.
Grubbs definitely counts as a big time talent ranking 33rd nationally by Rivals in the 2026 class. His offer list is quite strong including Virginia Tech, Michigan, Penn State, Notre Dame, Miami, Texas A&M, Duke, Pittsburgh, UCF, West Virginia, and more.
He's also put on a show in his first 2 games of his sophomore season going 39-61 (63.9%) for 796 yards, 12 touchdowns, and only 3 interceptions.
So how did this visit impact his recruitment and view of Virginia Tech?
"I’ve been there 3 times now and it just gets better everytime! That atmosphere was incredible and that excites me!" Grubbs said.
It may be very early in his recruitment, but Virginia Tech is a legitimate contender in the recruitment of 2026 four-star QB Noah Grubbs.
