Tyler Johnson
Small Forward, Class of 2024
Oak Ridge, Orlando, FL
6-5, 190

On Wednesday, Virginia Tech and Mike Young picked up their first commitment in the 2024 class in Tyler Johnson.

A 6-5, 190-pound small forward from Orlando, Fla., Johnson visited Blacksburg in late August and committed soon after. Though unranked by 247Sports, he’s a three-star prospect according to Rivals and On3 and is a top-20 player in the Sunshine State in the 2024 class. Nationally, he’s a top-250 prospect.

Johnson held offers from Appalachian State, Clemson, Florida Atlantic, Illinois, Texas Tech and UCF, among others.

Tech’s updated scholarship breakdown with the addition of Johnson is below. His commitment gives the Hokies three small forwards on next year’s roster along with Tyler Nickel (6-7) and John Camden (6-8). The program has four open scholarships for next season, though Lynn Kidd and Mylyjael Poteat both have the option to return thanks to COVID.
