Last night, three-star RB and major Virginia Tech target Tahj Gary announced that he will be making his collegiate decision tomorrow. The three-star RB was recently on campus for Virginia Tech's game against Notre Dame and also took an official visit to South Carolina at the beginning of September according to 247 Sports. The Hokies do have one RB commit in Keshawn King, but Virginia Tech seemed likely to add a second RB ever since given their current RB situation with Gary being a top target. If the Hokies do get Gary, the Hokies should be done at running back with the Atlanta tailback and King. My most recent prediction was in the Hokies' favor and at this time, I continue to stand by that prediction. For weeks, the Hokies have had the momentum in Gary's recruitment and the fact that he has taken a non-official visit to a top contender in Virginia Tech is another sign of how great his interest is in the Hokies.

Tahj Gary in the Recruiting Rankings

Among running backs, Gary is ranked 35th best by Rivals, 40th best by the 247 Sports Composite, 43rd best by 247 Sports, and 50th best by ESPN. In the state of Georgia, Gary is ranked 63rd best by Rivals, 66th best by the 247 Sports Composite, 71st best by 247 Sports, and 77th best by ESPN.
