Abbey, who is listed at 6-4, 215, picked the Hokies over offers from East Carolina, Marshall, Kent State and Vanderbilt. 247 lists him as the No. 33 prospect in the state of Virginia, though at this stage of the recruiting cycle their rankings are incomplete. He is unranked by Rivals, who also have yet to complete their 2023 rankings. New recruiting network On3 lists Abbey as the No. 9 prospect in Virginia.
A Google search lists Abbey as having made 17 tackles for loss and seven sacks as a junior in 2021, though his stats aren’t listed on any of the recruiting services. Both Fontel Mines and defensive line coach JC Price recruited Abbey to Virginia Tech.
Abbey was originally offered a scholarship by the Hokies on March 4.
