Pollard is being recruited to play defensive tackle for the Hokies, a position that is very important in the 2019 recruiting class. He is listed with 16 other Power 5 scholarship offers in the 247Sports database, including Miami, Florida, Louisville, Mississippi State, NC State, and others.
Pollard becomes the ninth commitment of the 2019 class, and the fifth player that is expected to play defense. He is the first defensive lineman to verbal in this class.
The Hokies want to take two more defensive tackles in this class, and as of now Bishop Sullivan’s Adarious Jones and Kissimmee, FL’s Mario Kendricks are their other two preferred options. Kendricks is expected to make his decision on June 30, and Virginia Tech is considered to be the favorite.
