Virginia Tech got good news on Saturday afternoon when Kissimmee, FL defensive tackle Mario Kendricks made his verbal commitment to the Hokies. He is the 13th commitment of the 2019 class, and the second defensive tackle, joining fellow Florida defensive tackle Norell Pollard in the class.

Kendricks chose the Hokies over multiple Power 5 offers, including Louisville, NC State, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Tennessee Mississippi State, and many others. He is 6-1, 275, and fits the prototypical build of a Virginia Tech defensive tackle recruit.
With Kendricks announcing for Virginia Tech, and Adarious Jones committing to Texas A&M this afternoon, the Hokies could be done with defensive tackle recruiting for the 2019 class. The only other current possibility is D’Von Ellies of Maryland.
