Virginia Tech has extended a scholarship offer to 6’5″, 275-pound offensive lineman Zachariah Hoyt, the Roanoke Times has reported. Hoyt is a senior out of Salem High School (Salem, VA), which reached the 4A state championship game this past season.

Hoyt has also received scholarship offers from Pittsburgh and BYU. He took an official visit to Pitt this past weekend, an experience he told TSL sister site DreamBackfield.com “went great.”
An official visit to BYU is reportedly scheduled for this weekend.
Virginia Tech, which already has a commitment from Salem senior RB/WR Coleman Fox, has offered the Salem standout a “grayshirt” opportunity. This means that if Hoyt were to accept he would sign a letter of intent with the rest of the class of 2015 but would not enroll until January of 2016.
Stay tuned to TSL for more on this latest development.
