It was a big recruiting weekend for Virginia Tech, as they hosted numerous high school juniors. One of them decided to end his recruitment early and make his pledge to the Hokies. Wide receiver Elijah Bowick is the latest player from the state of North Carolina to commit to Tech, and he did so over an impressive list of other offers.

Elijah Bowick is listed at 6-1, 187 on 247Sports, and he has an offer list that includes NC State, South Carolina, Duke, Louisville, Maryland, Tennessee, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and others. He has been leaning towards Virginia Tech in recent weeks, and his visit to Blacksburg over the weekend helped seal the deal.
Bowick is Virginia Tech’s second commitment for the 2019 recruiting class, joining Richmond athlete Jahad Carter. The Myers Park High School (Charlotte) receiver caught 58 passes for 1,006 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. He was just one of many prospects who made their way to Virginia Tech for Junior Day. We’ll have more information on that event this week.
He is rated as a 3-star prospect by most services, and Rivals.com lists him as the No. 19 player in North Carolina. Rankings for 2019 recruits are still incomplete at this stage however, but judging from his offer list, Bowick will at least be a high 3-star prospect.
