Radford WR Marcell Baylor Commits To Virginia Tech

Marcell Baylor
Wide Receiver, Class of 2023
Radford, Radford, Va.
6-3, 195

On Tuesday evening, Virginia Tech and Brent Pry received a commitment from Marcell Baylor, a three-star wide receiver.

A local from Radford High School, Baylor is the sixth commit in the Hokies’ 2023 class, the second at a skill position. He’s visited Tech multiple times, including receiving his first offer from his “dream school” back in January. When he visited in March, every member of Tech’s staff was at the door to greet him.

The Hokies have always been his top choice, in part due to his close relationship to safeties coach Pierson Prioleau. The former Super Bowl winner was Radford High School’s defensive coordinator from 2011-18 and is Baylor’s primary recruiter.

Since picking up his Tech offer, Baylor has received attention from a handful of schools. Boston College, Appalachian State, UConn, James Madison, Liberty, Temple and Old Dominion have all offered him. Per the 247Sports composite rankings, he is the No. 22 player in Virginia.

Here’s a list of Virginia Tech’s Class of 2023 commits in alphabetical order:

Jason Abbey (6-4, 215): DE, Richmond, Va.
Gabriel Arena (6-5, 285): OL, Harrisburg, Pa.
Marcell Baylor (6-3, 195): WR, Radford, Va.
Hannes Hammer (6-6, 272): OL, Roanoke, Va.
Dante Lovett (6-1, 185): ATH, Hyattsville, Md.

  1. Looks like a good one. Here’s hoping he becomes the most famous person to come out of Radford … besides Seka of course.

  2. Is he that tough to tackle, or are his opponents playing two-hand touch? As a Hokie fan I hope it’s the former, but from that clip it looks like it’s more the latter…

  3. Great to get this local young man. As Bruce Smith says “got to recruit Virginia” and Coach Pry knows this so welcome home to the ‘burg!!!!

  4. GREAT GET – Welcome. This kid is good and will really help us out in a few years. Excellent!

  5. Mr. Baylor, welcome. And it’s great that your family will be able to see all of your home games.

  6. I hope you mean the No. 22 “player” in Virginia, not the No. 22 “WR”

  7. Great to get local guys that really wannabe here. Love the size.

    Roll Tech!
