Yesterday, Zonovan Knight decommitted from Duke and today, the four-star RB received his first offer since his decommitment. Virginia Tech extended an offer to Zonovan Knight. The Hokies are the 14th offer overall in his recruitment and tenth from a power 5 program with half of his offers coming from ACC programs. Knight is the latest North Carolina target for the Hokies with three-star WR Elijah Bowick already committed and four-star DBs J.R. Walker and Khalid Martin being among some of VT's top targets in North Carolina. Knight does have a connection to Virginia Tech as he has been teammates with Nadir Thompson who signed with the Hokies this past February. Like Knight, Thompson also decommitted from another ACC program in NC State before committing to the Hokies not long after. The question that remains now is will Zonovan Knight continue to follow Nadir Thompson's recruiting footsteps to Blacksburg? For the Hokies, they have plenty of work ahead to make that happen.
