Tight End, Class of 2020
St. Thomas More, Oakdale, CT
Virginia Tech signed 2020 tight end Wilfried Pene to a Letter of Intent on Wednesday. He was only recently offered by the Hokies, and he visited Blacksburg over the weekend.
247Sports ranks Pene as the No. 3 overall prep school prospect in the country, and No. 1 prep school tight end. He attends St. Thomas More in Oakdale, CT. 247 rates him as a 3-star prospect.
Pene doesn’t hold any other Power 5 scholarship offers, though there could be a very good reason for that. He was born and raised in France, and his family is still in that country. He did not come to the attention of college coaches until very recently, likely when they were on the St. Thomas More campus to recruit 4-star receiver Alante Brown, who will attend Nebraska.
Pene is the only tight end commit of the 2020 recruiting class.
