Four-star CB Troy Stevenson out of Charleston, South Carolina may not be a name on the radar for many Virginia Tech fans currently. However, if you keep up heavily with recruiting, he probably should be as one of Tech's top DB targets in the 2024 class.

The good news for the Hokies is that they currently have lots of momentum in his recruitment.

Stevenson told us that Virginia Tech is among the schools currently standing out in his recruitment along with Georgia, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Wake Forest, Maryland, Georgia Tech, and Boston College. He had this to say about why the Hokies are currently standing out for him.

"They’re showing a lot of love, always keeping in contact with me, building a great relationship, and also trying to get me up there for one of their junior days," Stevenson said.

Even better news for Tech is the fact that Stevenson is "planning" to visit Blacksburg for their elite junior day on January 28th. He added that he is also planning to take a visit to Georgia Tech soon.

Leading the charge for the Hokies in their pursuit of Stevenson is South Carolina native and safeties coach Pierson Prioleau. Stevenson had this to say about his relationship with Prioleau.

"We have a good relationship. Sometimes would we talk on FaceTime, and he would also come see me at school," Stevenson said.

Stevenson has built up an impressive offer list to date that includes offers from every Power 5 conference as you can see below based on what he's reported on his Twitter.

  • ACC: Virginia Tech, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Miami, Wake Forest
  • Big 10: Maryland, Michigan State, Penn State
  • Big 12: West Virginia
  • Pac-12: Washington
  • SEC: Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Missouri, Ole Miss, Tennessee
  • FBS Independent: Notre Dame
  • Sun Belt: Coastal Carolina

The impressive offer list shouldn't come as a surprise as he continues to shine at the high school level as he shared with us.

"I did well. Sadly, we got put out the first round, but I think I only had 1 ball caught on me the whole season. I also had 22 total tackles with 1 forced fumble, 2 interceptions including a pick 6, and 8 pass breakups," Stevenson said.

The Hokies are off to a very good start in Troy Stevenson's recruitment with a great chance to build on that when he visits Blacksburg next weekend.
