Virginia Tech had themselves a successful opening June official visit weekend as they landed a commitment from three-star DB Quentin Reddish out of Charlotte.
Reddish chose the Hokies over offers from NC State, Wake Forest, Miami, West Virginia, Duke, Missouri, UVA, Indiana, and more. The three-star safety is from the same high school (Independence) in Charlotte as another former talented Virginia Tech DB, Adonis Alexander.
He is Tech's seventh commit overall and second in the secondary along with three-star CB Joshua Clarke out of Northern Virginia. He is also the third commit from the state of North Carolina along with three-star RB Tyler Mason and three-star DE Deric Dandy.
Reddish was one of four high school official visitors this weekend with this visit originally being scheduled for the middle of this upcoming weekend. Clearly, Tech made a big push going into this visit to get it onto the weekend and begin their big move to now closing out his recruitment despite heavy interest from in-state NC schools like NC State and Wake Forest among others.
Reddish was also one of Virginia Tech's top safety targets from what we heard and was seemingly an under-the-radar guy for many in terms of how high he actually was on Tech's board. Safeties coach Pierson Prioleau deserves plenty of credit for getting one of his top safety targets on board.
Reddish is a fascinating prospect at safety who has tremendous size at 6'3'' reminiscent of Adonis Alexander in many ways. He's also been highly productive during his high school career headlined by a strong junior season with 76 tackles including 2 for loss plus 5 interceptions among his 15 total pass deflections. There's tons to like about the upside that Reddish brings to the table given his size and his HS production.
With Reddish on board, Tech seems likely to take one more safety at most though that could be more of a versatile DB who could play either CB or safety at the collegiate level depending on their physical and athletic development.
