Quarterback Kelden Ryan from Texas has committed, while the Hokies have landed three in-state recruits in offensive lineman Carter Stallard, along with a pair of Green Run High School teammates Knahlij Harrell and Jayden Anderson from Virginia Beach announced in February that were going to play their college football in Blacksburg.

Thursday, a three-star running back from Virginia announced four visit dates and the final school on the list is Virginia Tech.

Overton, who was named the Gatorade Player of the Year in Virginia, posted on X in January about his visit to Virginia Tech and the 5-foot-10, 187-pound shifty back is certainly a focus of Pry and his staff.
