Felton joins cornerback Derrick Canteen, offensive lineman Johnny Dickson, tight end Dae’Quan Wright, and running back Bryce Duke in the transfer portal from this season’s team.
Hokies are a finalist for 3-star football recruit
Three-star recruit wide receiver Jayden Anderson announced on X that he has narrowed his college choices down to six teams with Virginia Tech being one of the finalists.
Anderson said on X that he appreciated every school that took time in the recruiting process, but he had narrowed his choices down to Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Auburn, West Virginia, Maryland, and South Carolina.
Wide receiver is a position of need for Virginia Tech in the future and getting Anderson would be a huge win for Brent Pry and his staff. He is a Virginia native from Virginia Beach and getting him to come to Blacksburg would be a big win for in-state recruiting.
