Athlete, Class of 2023
Collegiate School, Richmond, VA
Virginia Tech picked up a commitment from Collegiate School (Richmond, VA) athlete Krystian Williams on Monday afternoon. He is the 16th member of the 2023 recruiting class and the eight from the state of Virginia.
Williams plays wide receiver and defensive back for Collegiate School. He chose the Hokies over offers from UVA, Duke, Boston College, Wake Forest and Rutgers. He could conceivable play on either side of the ball for the Hokies, and if he plays defense, his likely position would be safety. Given that Tech could use another taller receiver in this class, it’s also possible that he could get his first look on offense.
In the rankings, Williams is No. 14 in the state by 247, No. 20 by On3, and No. 26 by Rivals.
Williams is the fourth player from the Richmond area to commit to the Hokies in this recruiting class as Brent Pry and his coaching staff continue to put an emphasis on that part of the state.
