While the focus is on the talented group of official visitors who are on campus, Virginia Tech also has a fascinating unofficial visitor today that will be recognizable to many in VA, 757 native and former Florida State RB Khalan Laborn.

Laborn was a top target in the 2018 class for the Hokies alongside guys like Devon Hunter, who chose Virginia Tech out of high school, and Jordan Williams, who transferred from Clemson to Virginia Tech after the 2020 season. Laborn ran for 293 yards and 4 touchdowns during the 2019 season before injuries and some other off-the-field issues led to his departure from Tallahassee.

There's no denying the talent that Laborn brings to the table with Virginia Tech clearly looking to get a read to make sure that he would fit well in the program. Of course, Laborn would face some competition for primary running back carries but if the Hokies were able to land him, he definitely could be an offensive difference maker whether in 2021 or 2022.

It is unclear if Laborn could enroll this summer at Virginia Tech or would be a January enrollee given his current unknown status surrounding the JUCO level. Given the tight scholarship numbers for the 2022 cycle, that is absolutely something to monitor especially given how that could affect the recruiting board for Tech.
