Virginia Tech football coach Brent Pry and his staff are out working the recruiting trail hard. They are leaving no stone unturned and being aggressive with the Class of 2025, and 2026. Recently, they offered another tight end in the Class of 2025 an offer.

Three-star TE Mike Tyler announced on X that he received an offer from Virginia Tech to his list of schools that are looking to land the Columbia, South Carolina recruit. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Tyler has several Division 1 offers including the Hokies.

One look at his film and you can see why Virginia Tech would be interested. He is a talented receiver who runs precise routes and has good hands who will catch a lot of balls thrown in his area. He can line up in a traditional tight-end spot or off the line.
