By: Tim Thomas | @TimThomasTLP | Jul 28, 2019
Three-star LB/ATH Jordan Poole was busy this weekend taking a visit to Virginia Tech on Saturday one day after taking a visit to NC State. Unsurprisingly, his visit to Blacksburg did not disappoint. "It was great! I loved spending the day in Blacksburg," Poole said about his VT visit. Poole's day at Virginia Tech was busy with lots of time spent with Hokies' coaches and players. "First, I toured the campus and facility, then had a meeting with my position coach, hung out a little with the players and recruits, went bowling, and ate with my family," Poole said. As mentioned above, Poole's time included the chance to have a conversation with Hokies' defensive coordinator and LBs coach Bud Foster which went quite well. "It was great being around arguably one of the best Defensive Coordinators in the game," Poole said about his time with Bud Foster. So what stood out the most for Jordan Poole during his time on campus? "Everything that means VT, such as family, winning, and the home feel; and also them making you a better player on and off the field," Poole said. So how did this visit impact his recruitment and view of Virginia Tech? "(This visit) really gave me a little of that home feel I’m looking for, and was great being able to see what VT is about," Poole said. On top of that, Poole told us that Virginia Tech and NC State continue to stand out as the two ACC rivals both made a strong impression on the talented linebacker. For now, the Hokies and Wolfpack look like the top two contenders for this talented linebacker though there's plenty of time for more teams to still get involved. While NC State may have some home turf advantage, the Hokies have proven to be more than adept at winning major recruiting battles in North Carolina both form inside the state and other large programs outside of it. Virginia Tech made a strong impression on Jordan Poole with the Hokies clearly emerging as a force in his recruitment going forward.
