The Hokies picked up another 2018 commitment late on Friday night, as Virginia Beach athlete Armani Chatman picked Virginia Tech
The Virginia Tech Hokies landed their 14th verbal commitment of the 2018 recruiting class on Friday night, as 3-star athlete Armani Chatman announced his pledge to the Hokies via his official Twitter account.
The 6’0″ 180 lbs. Virginia Beach native is the first of the 14 members of the 2018 class to commit to the Hokies within the state of Virginia.
We all know of the strong push that the Tech coaching staff has put together in North Carolina, but Fuente and company are now hoping that their recruitment of Chatman will open more doors in the Tidewater area for 2018.

Chatman has played both wide receiver and defensive back in his first three years at Bayside High, and that should continue in his senior year after his transfer to Bishop Sullivan. As a receiver, Chatman is likely strong enough to compete at the position right away.
As a corner, a bit more experience under his belt, along with some seasoning from a fundamentals perspective would benefit Chatman when he arrives in Blacksburg next year.
Chatman selected the Hokies over numerous FBS schools, including West Virginia, NC State, Auburn, Rutgers, and Maryland. Chatman also recently visited Ohio State, as reported by 247 Sports.
Chatman’s commitment ends a strong June push that began at a satellite camp that the Hokies held at Hampton University on the 13th of this month, per Tech Sideline.
11 days later, Chatman is a Hokie.
