Virginia Tech offered three-star RB Tahj Gary earlier this month and today, the Hokies made his top 8.
Virginia Tech made Gary's top 8 alongside Arkansas, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, North Carolina, Purdue, and South Carolina. Gary has emerged as one of the Hokies' top RB targets since VT offered him earlier this month.
The Hokies have made the state of Georgia one of their top recruiting priorities since the arrival of Justin Fuente and their pursuit of Gary is the latest example of this. The Hokies haven't hosted Gary for a visit as far as we know and it will be important for the Hokies to get him to campus soon. However, that does seem likely now that VT has made Gary's top 8.
At this point, Gary's recruitment feels quite wide open especially with some of the major offers he has received this month from VT and Arkansas.
The Hokies are in the hunt for Atlanta RB Tahj Gary, but it'll be important for VT to get him to Blacksburg for a visit to gain more traction in his recruitment.
