Virginia Tech had some recruiting fireworks of their own this fourth of July as three-star ATH Thomas Williams committed to the Hokies.
Williams chose the Hokies over offers from Penn State, West Virginia, East Carolina, Old Dominion, Liberty, and UAB. He is Tech's sixth commit in the past 7 days following three-star LBs Tavorian Copeland & Aycen Stevens, three-star S/LB Caleb Woodson, three-star DB Braylon Johnson, and three-star ATH Tralon Mitchell.
Tech has prioritized Williams throughout 2022 with the Hokies getting control of his 2023 recruitment early and never relinquishing it through his official visit in mid-June.
Williams is an intriguing athlete who could play a variety of positions for VT whether he's a defensive back or running back. Part of where he starts out could depend on how Tech's RB class comes together with priority targets Durell Robinson and Peyton Jones deciding this week.
