Virginia Tech added a big commitment on Tuesday, as linebacker Keshon Artis announced his decision via Twitter to commit to the Hokies for the Class of 2018.

Artis is a senior from Oscar Smith High School in Chesapeake, Va. He’s rated as a 3-star prospect by both Rivals and 247Sports’ Composite rating, but is rated as a 4-star prospect by ESPN. Artis holds 17 scholarship offers, including offers from Central Florida, NC State, Duke, Maryland, Tennessee and West Virginia. 

Virginia Tech now holds commitments from two linebackers in the Class of 2018. Artis joins Alan Tisdale, who committed to Virginia Tech on July 1. The Hokies are also still recruiting linebacker Dax Hollifield, a consensus 4-star prospect.

As of now, Virginia Tech holds commitments from 22 recruits for their Class of 2018. Artis is the third commitment from the state of Virginia, joining athlete Armani Chatman and running back Cole Beck.

  1. Welcome to the Hokies we have been waiting for someone like u since Vince Hall. Proud you selected this great program and Hokie for life

  2. Welcome to the hokie huddle. I am very pleased that you chose Virginia Tech. It’s a great experience for a life time.

  3. We are gathering big time LB gets. Here’s to Rivers, Artis, Kearney, Ashby, Beckett, and Griffin developing into an awesome corps. Add Dax and we could be like Alabama in terms of LBs.

  4. This guy is a perfect fit to play the middle for the LPD. He has a nose for the ball and always seems to arrive in a bad mood. I am excited to see him in O&M. He was at the top of my wish list for the defensive side of the ball.

  5. VT has acquired a good person from a nice family, with an impressive offer list and a great attitude.
    Congratulations Artis on your outstanding choice ! Can’t wait to see you on the field. Go Artis / Go Hokies !

  6. Great and welcome.

    Come on Dax along with a good 3* left tackle would be a great solid class.

  7. Watch his HS highlights. This guy is a pure natural ballhawk at LB. Huge get for the Hokies!
