While Virginia Tech's 2023 high school class doesn't have too much room yet, the Hokies have extended a couple of new offers recently including one to 2023 CB Misun Kelley out of Central, South Carolina.

Kelley told us that he was "amazed, blessed, and thankful" to receive an offer from the Hokies during a Friday phone conversation with head coach Brent Pry and his chief of staff Michael Hazel. He had this to say about how his conversation with Pry went as a whole.

"It was pretty good. He asked about my family and how I was doing in school. We were on the phone for a good 30 minutes," Kelley said.

He also had plenty of friends around him to celebrate with him after his conversation with Pry and Hazel wrapped up.

The Hokies join a solid offer list for Kelley that also includes Louisville, East Carolina, Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, Navy, Tulane, JMU, Old Dominion, Liberty, Marshall, Georgia State, Troy, Middle Tennessee State, and East Tennessee State. Kelley is also receiving interest from Clemson, Oklahoma, and Florida as plenty of Power 5 programs are showing loads of interest.

This comes after Kelley had a strong junior season at D.W. Daniel HS with 15 pass breakups and 20+ tackles along with 750 receiving yards and 12 receiving touchdowns plus over 100 rushing yards and 2 rushing touchdowns.

Though Kelley is a two-way athlete at the high school level, he is being recruited by VT as a nickelback primarily.

So what are the strengths and weaknesses of his game in Kelley's eyes?

"I don’t have weaknesses, I’m just a dog. I love the game, too many players try to be technical with the game, I just try to play football and be an athlete while still having good technique at the same time. I'm just an athlete who can play anything," Kelley said.

So how does this offer impact his recruitment and where Virginia Tech stands in it?

"VT is number one and it is getting a lot better right now with recruiting. A lot of schools are starting to hop on," Kelley said.

Misun Kelley added that Virginia Tech is "number 1" in his recruitment because of "the coaches, the facilities, and just everything around."

Looking ahead, Kelley told us that he is looking to make his collegiate decision "in the next two months" and added this on what the key factors will be for him.

"Family, how they treat me, and if they really care about me," Kelley said.
