VT Football Recruiting Board

Welcome to The Tech Lunch Pail recruiting board where you can get the latest updates on Virginia Tech football recruiting board and see who Virginia Tech has their eyes on.

Class of 2019

Predictions

3* RB Tahj Gary-Virginia Tech: A tweet from Rivals today emerged stating that Virginia Tech lead for a Georgia RB with the name Tahj Gary being shown in the short free portion of the story. In addition, the story title added that Gary is looking to decide soon.

Virginia Tech has very little room at this point, but seem likely to add a second running back to this class with Gary positioning himself to be that guy. In addition, the Georgia tailback was on campus at the end of July and hasn’t appeared to take any other visits since. Right now, the Hokies are the favorites for Tahj Gary based on this report and how VT has room to take a second RB. (August 27th, 2018)

Class of 2020

Predictions

3* RB Kaelon Black-Virginia Tech: Though Kaelon Black is likely to see his recruitment take off soon and doesn’t have a formal leader, Virginia Tech has emerged as the clear on-paper favorite for the 757 star. The Hokies have made Black a priority since offering him and have stood out for him consistently since his recruitment has taken off. Of course, a lot could change in the coming months as he seems bound to see his offer list explode, but the Hokies are in great shape for the 757 star RB. (September 15th, 2018)

4* DB Cameron Roseman-Sinclair-Virginia Tech: The four-star Charlotte defensive back is close friends with VT commit Elijah Bowick and that relationship is a huge advantage for the Hokies. After his recent visit, Roseman-Sinclair told us that the Hokies were at the top of his recruitment and while his relationship with Bowick has helped, VT has put themselves in a great position to land one of the best safeties in the country. Right now, the Hokies are the clear frontrunner for one of the top recruits in the state of North Carolina. (August 16th, 2018)

4* RB Blake Corum-Virginia Tech: Blake Corum has visited Virginia Tech five times already as the Hokies have made him a priority. While he doesn’t currently have a leader in his recruitment, VT is among 4 standing out and appears to be in the best position for him. Wisconsin, Michigan State, and USC also should be seen as serious contenders, but the Hokies are the on-paper frontrunner currently. (August 12th, 2018)

4* WR KeAndre Lambert-Virginia Tech: Since offering him, Virginia Tech has made it clear to KeAndre Lambert that he is one of their top wide receiver targets in the 2020 class. Lambert was impressed with his Spring Game visit that has the Hokies in very good shape in his recruitment. In addition, the fact that Lambert is Kam Chancellor’s nephew definitely doesn’t hurt the Hokies’ chances. Even if Lambert wasn’t Chancellor’s nephew, VT would have plenty of reasons to feel quite good about their current standing in his recruitment. (April 22nd, 2018)
