Rudolph picked the Hokies over offers from Cincinnati, East Carolina, ODU, Marshall, and others. A car accident during his junior season of high school limited his development and hurt his recruitment, but he has made a full recovery.
At 6-4, 202, the Tech coaches like Rudolph’s frame and his overall athletic ability. From a size and athleticism standpoint, he compares favorably to Virginia Tech’s current starting free safety, Divine Deablo. Free safety is likely where Rudolph will begin his career in Blacksburg.
Rudolph is the sixth commitment of the 2020 recruiting class.
