247Sports and Rivals are reporting that Kareem Felder, a 6’0″, 165-pound cornerback out of St. Frances Academy (Baltimore, MD), has verbally committed to Virginia Tech. Felder is the second cornerback commitment in the class of 2016 for Virginia Tech, which now has four commitments in total in the class.
Boston College, Cincinnati, Iowa, North Carolina and West Virginia also had extended early offers to Felder, who earned MIAA all-Conference A honors this past season. 247Sports named him as a top performer at the U.S. Army National Junior Combine in San Antonio (TX) last month.
Both of Virginia Tech’s class of 2016 commits hail from Maryland – Felder from Baltimore and Myles Wolfolk from Wise High School in Upper Marlboro. Georgia quarterback Logan Byrd and North Carolina wide receiver Conner ODonnell have committed to Tech’s 2016 Class as well.
Tech’s football program is hosting a Junior Day recruiting event today. Stay tuned to TSL for more on Felder’s commitment as well as other news from today’s event.
