Virginia Tech's Fourth of July started off with a major overnight commitment from talented in-state DL Rashaud Pernell.
Pernell is Tech's fifth in-state commit this cycle along with three-star DE Kyree Moyston, three-star DT Lemar Law Jr, three-star RB Bryce Duke, and three-star TE Harrison Saint Germain. Pernell also is Tech's third defensive line commitment along with Moyston and Law.
Pernell is undoubtedly a big in-state commit that gives Tech even more momentum in VA as they look to land some more top Richmond prospects including four-star RB Ramon Brown and three-star DE Bryson Jennings. This also helps as Tech looks to add four-star SWVA OL Gunner Givens to the class on July 16th.
Pernell projects as a defensive tackle for Tech with room likely for at least one more and maybe two. Four-star DT Santana Hopper and three-star DTs Malachi Madison and Gilbert Tongrongou are among the other DT recruits to keep an eye on to join Pernell and Lemar Law.
