After a strong close to the 2023 high school recruiting cycle at Early Signing Day, Virginia Tech is carrying lots of momentum on the recruiting trail into the 2024 cycle. That continued over the past week with the Hokies making the top 10 for four-star WR Alex Taylor out of Greensboro, NC.

The Hokies were joined by Clemson, Penn State, NC State, North Carolina, Wake Forest, Auburn, Missouri, West Virginia, and East Carolina in his top 10. Duke and Virginia were among the most notable offers of his to not make the cut.

He had this to say about why the Hokies made his top 10.

"They are a school that offered me early, and they have always showed love with a great coaching staff," Taylor said.

Recruiting staffer Lino Lupinetti has taken on a big role in Taylor's recruitment for the Hokies with the four-star WR having this to say about their relationship.

"It's great, always talking to him, great vibes, and just a joy to be around," Taylor said.

WRs coach Fontel Mines has also taken a leading role in his recruitment as you'd expect with Taylor having this to say about their relationship.

"It's pretty good. I talk to him a lot," Taylor said. "I love his vibe and how he keeps it real."

Head coach Brent Pry has been fairly involved in this recruitment showing high on Tech's 2024 WR board Taylor is. He had this to say about his relationship with Pry.

"We have good relationship. He's always a joy to be around, and is a great coach with a lot of experience," Taylor said.

It shouldn't be a surprise that Taylor is a priority for the Hokies after he had a strong junior seasons where he had 65 catches for 1,034 yards and 12 touchdowns per MaxPreps. So what are the strengths and weaknesses of his game?

"I would say my strengths are 50/50 catches, breaking tackles, blocking, and creating separation," Taylor said. "I would say my weakness is breakaway speed 20-30 yards downfield."
