Kadum was a James Madison commit until his visit to Blacksburg this weekend. With Josh Jackson and Hendon Hooker entering their names into the transfer portal, the Virginia Tech coaching staff felt it was imperative that they take a quarterback in the 2019 class. He also held FBS offers from Akron, Georgia Southern, Tulane and Rutgers.
Kadum won the state championship his last two years at Rome High School. In a 4-year career as a starter, he completed 64.5% of his passes for 7,400 yards, with 76 touchdowns and 15 interceptions while rushing for 2,414 yards and 37 touchdowns. As a senior, he had 21 touchdown passes and zero interceptions to go along with 619 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns.
