Early this summer, Evan Pryor came to Blacksburg and earned an offer from Virginia Tech
. This past weekend, Pryor returned to Blacksburg for the first time since the Hokies offered him.
Pryor told us that he had a "good" visit specifically mentioning that he was able to check out campus while at VT. He also told us that hearing about the passion and support of Hokie Nation stood out to him.
"I was told about how much the campus really come together for the athletic teams and when you play there, you have a family behind you," Pryor said.
In addition, Pryor said that the Hokies made "great points about their academic strengths" during his visit. Overall, this visit helped Pryor learn a lot about Virginia Tech as he continues on in the initial portion of his recruitment.
Looking ahead, Pryor doesn't plan to take any more visits before the start of the 2018 college football season. After that, Pryor does plan to visit Virginia Tech when they host Notre Dame and Penn State when they host Ohio State.
Evan Pryor is going to be one of the top running backs in the 2021 class, and the Hokies have positioned themselves well early on in his recruitment.
