  1. Welcome Clay! Proud to have you join the Hokie Nation and will look forward to seeing you play for the Hokies. You will find the Hokie Nation to be the greatest place on earth to play football because Hokie fans are the best. Your news makes today a great time to be a Hokie!!!!

  2. Welcome to Hokie Nation Clay…We are thrilled to have you and look forward to you having a long productive college career; both on and off the field!!

    You will love being a Hokie!

  3. Welcome young man and try to overlook the numsculls that posted. We are glad your a Hokie.

    1. They probably haven’t seen his video. Very impressive first step and keeps the legs moving. You can’t teach that.

    2. a few question for you
      if he gets more offers later will that make you fell better? because it’s important that you feel better than this guy right now celebrating his commitment to our football program.

      somebody has to be first to offer and if he always wanted to be a Hokie, what other offers does he need? loyalty to VT before he actually becomes a Hokie is special.

      if you aren’t impressed that our coaches offered, will you volunteer to hold the tackling dummy for this guy when he shows up for his first practice?

      hmmmmm right back at both of you.

      1. My you are so defensive and need to relax. I hope he is awesome and gets many more offers. There been plenty of discussion on this site about VT recruiting players and coaches that other programs want. So this comment is warranted and does nothing more than state a fact.

        1. Agree it’s kinda a random commitment. A kid with no other offers (not even any other schools listed as interested, which doesn’t mean there aren’t, but I’ve never seen any recruit with no other schools listed); at a position we’re pretty loaded at…we could use highly ranked defensive ends or offensive lineman for example, but a DT ranked 41st in the state raises some questions; and it’s a year where we don’t have a lot of scholarships to hand out so it’s going to be a small class and we already have 9 commitments, none of them being OL, or DE….”hmmm” is exactly what I thought too. Nobody is saying the coaches are incompetent, or any of us could do a better job, or the kid won’t turn out to be a good player. Like I said, it just raises some eyebrows and seems pretty random, all things considered. That’s just honesty. I know everything has to be P.C. these days and you can’t ask any questions if it has the chance of offending someone.

        2. Not on the defensive and perfectly relaxed, thanks. If anybody thinks one offer at this stage of a players recruitment is a legit question, then so are the questions I asked. One offer so far doesn’t mean other schools aren’t in constant contact with him, it doesn’t mean other schools aren’t interested, and it doesn’t mean he won’t be a real contributor in the 4 or 5 years he’s here. Maybe the writer left those parts out.

          One offer from VT is 1000% better than any of the walk-ons who made all-conference or were real contributors at VT. The “one offer” comments are cheap shots made by people who want others to think they have some sort of insight into the football future.

          Nope, I’m not on defense, I’m on offense.

    3. Um, how bout “FIRST offer”. I could understand this sentiment if it was November of his senior year but the kid has a year left to play and grow now with added incentive to improve. So what he’s off the radar, there are promisimg things to like about his game. Number of offers be damned. Just my 2 cents.

      1. We’ve had plenty of players “under the radar” (they’re called walk-ons) who were great for the program. This guy is one step above them. Welcome aboard young man!
