Virginia Tech Picks Up Transfer Commitment From Miami DB Kaleb Spencer

Virginia Tech used its final open scholarship on transfer Kaleb Spencer, a linebacker/defensive back from Miami.

Spencer, who is a sophomore with three years of eligibility remaining, announced his commitment Saturday evening.  

Spencer’s from Gloucester, Virginia, and played high school ball at Life Christian Academy, where he was a three-star recruit in the 2023 class and the No. 673 player nationally, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Spencer played in 11 games last year as a true freshman for the Hurricanes, largely on special teams. He was credited with one tackle.

He likely joins the Hokies in the secondary, where Tech was looking for another safety option with some versatility like it had in Derrick Canteen last season.

Spencer’s the third post-spring transfer the Hokies have landed, joining UCLA quarterback Collin Schlee and Alabama defensive lineman Khurtiss Perry.

  1. Any word on why he was leaving Miami?
    Buried on depth chart I suspect like most

    Committed to Oklahoma at one point; joined Miami then out after freshman year

  2. I’m getting more and more excited about this season! Coach Pry and the rest of the staff have been working hard and the pieces feel like they are coming together (and in the right way). This could be where we turn the corner. 👍😃

    1. Yet our 2 best portals may come from Middle Tennessee St. and Georgia St.

      1. looks like you get them young from the name brands, and get them older from the G5 (like Ali Jennings)

      2. I think you sometimes have a bigger fish in a smaller pond vs a bigger fish in a lake. Hard to be as visible in a lake.
