A few new quarterback targets for Virginia Tech have emerged in recent weeks including three-star QB Tahj Bullock with the Hokies offering the Jersey City, NJ star recently.

Bullock had this to say about receiving an offer from Virginia Tech.

"Very honored that the coaching staff recognizes me as a guy they can see at the helm of their team," Bullock said.

Bullock received the offer during a Zoom call with his family, head coach Justin Fuente, and offensive coordinator/QBs coach Brad Cornelsen with the conversation going well as a whole as he told us.

"It was great. I can see they have a real interest in me and want to build a great relationship with me and my family," Bullock said.

Prior to the offer, assistant Zach Sparber was the primary person in contact with Bullock which shouldn't be surprising given how Sparber has usually had a large role with recruits of interest from the Garden State. Now that the Hokies are in, Bullock is excited about the opportunity and the relationship-building that is to come.

"It’s a great opportunity, and I’m looking forward to building a relationship with the staff," Bullock said.

Tech's significant interest also shows with the fact that the Hokies are already working on putting together a virtual visit with him while UCLA is another school that has a virtual visit in the works. Those 2 headline his current offer list that also includes programs like in-state Rutgers, Duke, Syracuse, Boston College, Temple, and others.

Bullock's offer list might be poised to grow even more soon with the three-star QB telling us that he is also receiving interest from Michigan State, Utah, California, Navy, and "a couple others" currently.

That shouldn't be surprising given the quality dual-threat QB he has proven to be after throwing 2,274 yards and 26 touchdowns plus rushing for "around 480" yards and 6 touchdowns this past season. VT's offense has proven to be most successful with a true dual-threat QB and Bullock has proven himself to be just that.

Virginia Tech is now all in with Tahj Bullock as one of their top QB targets and have quickly emerged as a top contender for the signal caller from New Jersey.
