Virginia Tech added another commitment from the Greensboro area on Saturday, as linebacker Alan Tisdale announced his decision to commit to the Hokies.
The news was reported by Spencer Turkin of the Greensboro (NC) News and Record:
Page’s Alan Tisdale Commits to Virginia Tech
Tisdale is a 6-foot-4, 217-pound recruit from Page High School in Greensboro, N.C. He’s rated as a 4-star recruit by Rivals and a 3-star recruit by 247Sports. Tisdale holds 12 listed Power 5 offers, including offers from Louisville, NC State, Mississippi State, Maryland, NC State and Notre Dame.
Tisdale was previously listed at 6-3, 205 by TSL, but he said in the News and Record article that he is 6-4, 217. Tisdale also said he will be enrolling at Virginia Tech in January of 2018.
Virginia Tech now holds commitments from 15 players, five of whom are from the state of North Carolina. Tisdale is also the third commitment for the Hokies from the greater-Greensboro area, joining Tre Turner and DJ Crossen. So far, Virginia Tech seems to be generating results from their increased efforts in recruiting the Tar Heel state.
Tisdale is also the first linebacker to commit for the Class of 2018. Because Virginia Tech has taken several linebackers in recent recruiting classes, the Hokies have limited space at the position for this class. Dax Hollifield and Keshon Artis are likely the only remaining targets at linebacker for the Class of 2018.
