Despite a strong weekend on the field, Virginia Tech received some disappointing news off of it with three-star QB Noah Kim decommitting from the Hokies.

Kim drops the Hokies back to 11 commits for this class and leaves the Hokies without a QB. However, Virginia Tech may not look to replace Kim with another QB this cycle with numbers being tight and Virginia Tech's long-term QB depth chart looking as good as it has in a long time.
Kim's departure gives Virginia Tech a little more flexibility especially with the Hokies likely only having room for 4-6 more commits this class. That flexibility could allow the Hokies to add another offensive lineman, defensive lineman, wide receiver, or cornerback; positions that all appear to be priorities for the Hokies in filling this class out.
Virginia Tech has also been pushing to flip several recruits and hosted several recruits that were either former or current commits elsewhere this past weekend including LaMareon James (former UNC commit), Myles Jackson (former UCLA commit), Simeon Barrow Jr (current Michigan State commit), and Derek Bermudez (current Florida State commit).
For Kim, Michigan State appears to be the clear frontrunner with the Spartans having offered him already and setting up an official visit for him.
