King is the 14th verbal commitment of the 2019 recruiting class, and the first running back of the class. He ran for over 1,400 yards for Oakleaf last season, and also caught 11 passes.
King isn’t a name that was on the radar of Tech fans, because he wasn’t considered a serious VT target by recruiting analysts until the day he committed. However, he has a good offer list that includes Arkansas, Miami, Louisville, Ole Miss, Nebraska, South Carolina and others. He is a consensus three-star recruit, though ESPN rates him as a 4-star recruit and the No. 20 running back in the country.
It remains to be seen whether the Hokies plan to take another running back in this class, or if they are content with only King.
