Three-star OT Eagan Boyer out of Cornelius, NC is one of Virginia Tech's top 2024 offensive tackle targets with the Hokies currently in a strong position in his recruitment as he shared with us when asked who was standing out for him.

"Tennessee just offered so it will be interesting to see them this weekend. The WVU game environment was great. VT is still recruiting hard and right at the top for me," Boyer said.

He had this to say about why the Hokies are "right at the top" of his recruitment.

"They’re showing that they really want me there and that I can make a difference. And I like where they are headed with recruiting. It looks like they’ve picked up some good players," Boyer said.

Unsurprisingly, OL coach Joe Rudolph is leading Tech's charge for Boyer who had this to say about his relationship with Rudolph and how it has grown over time.

"It keeps getting better. He’s connected with my family so they are a fan of his as well. I just know I’ll get developed if I play for him," Boyer said.

Boyer also shared that he has a "good" relationship with offensive coordinator Tyler Bowen and a "solid" relationship with grad assistant Austin Fields who works heavily with the offensive line.

As you can see above, Boyer has lots of big time programs interested in him with an offer list that includes VT, Tennessee, Penn State, Kentucky, Louisville, Duke, Maryland, West Virginia, and more. So what has made him a big time prospect? He had this to say about his strengths and weaknesses.

"Length and athleticism are the two main strengths for sure. That really helps me in pass protection. I'm always working on getting bigger which will help me in the run game. That's my goal for next year is to improve my run blocking," Boyer said.

Looking ahead, Boyer had this to say about what his upcoming visit schedule looks like.

"So Tennessee this week, NC State next, then VT the last weekend of the month. Wisconsin is set for the spring and working on others," Boyer said. He added that Penn State is another school he is looking to visit this spring.

He currently doesn't have a specific date for making his commitment but "by the end of the summer is the goal" for him to make his decision. So what is he looking for in the school that he chooses?

"Going to a place where I know I’ll be developed, and is a winning program or going in the right direction," Boyer said.

Virginia Tech is in a great spot currently for one of their top OT targets in Eagan Boyer, but Joe Rudolph will have plenty of tough competition to fend off to land his commitment.
