2022 offensive lineman Collin Sadler has emerged as one of Virginia Tech's top 2022 targets along the offensive line with Sadler making a trip to Blacksburg this past weekend for Tech's Junior Day. Overall, Sadler enjoyed his visit as he tweeted and told us.

"It was amazing. Great to be able to sit down with the coaches and get to know them a lot better," Sadler said.

During his visit, Sadler had the opportunity to spend time with multiple coaches, tour the campus, take some photos, and eat some "good BBQ." Included in his visit was the opportunity to spend some time with head coach Justin Fuente and have a "long talk" with him which went quite well.

"It was great. We talked about what kind of people he wants to bring into the program and really just got to know each other," Sadler said.

Sadler also was able to spend some time with offensive line coach Vance Vice with Sadler being able to relate to Vice a lot during their conversations.

"It was really good. He’s a country boy just like me. He showed me pictures of him fishing and hunting so I find myself right at home around him," Sadler said.

TEs coach James Shibest has led the charge early on in Sadler's recruitment with the two building a solid relationship. That continued during Sadler's visit as his respect for Shibest has continued to grow.

"It was good. I’ve known Coach Shibest for a while and he is a great dude," Sadler said.

Sadler added that what stood out the most to him on his visit was "how genuine everyone was" at Virginia Tech. Overall, Sadler did say that it's way too early for him to tell how big of an impact this visit will have, but what's clear is that this visit went quite well for Collin Sadler.

Collin Sadler is a top offensive line priority in the 2022 class for Virginia Tech with the Hokies leaving a good impression on the talented recruit from South Carolina.
