A relatively new name on the Virginia Tech recruiting scene is Cory Holt, an outstanding quarterback prospect from Lexington high school in Lexington, NC.
The multi-talented Holt had an outstanding senior season, passing for 1,728 yards and 21 touchdowns with only six interceptions. He rushed for 935 yards and 17 touchdowns.
According to Holt, his strength is his versatility.
“I can run and pass,” said Holt. “I’m mobile. I’m not really quick, but I can definitely do some things [on the ground]. I have a strong arm.”
Holt will visit Virginia Tech next weekend for the weekend of January 31st. It will be the only official visit he has taken.
There are many reasons the talented quarterback likes the Hokies.
“They have great coaches,” said Holt, who is being recruited by quarterback coach Kevin Rogers. “Coach Rogers and Coach Pearman are great. Plus, my role model is [former VT and current Atlanta Falcon quarterback] Mike Vick. I’ll probably go there. This will be the only visit I take.”
In addition to his football talents, Holt also excels in basketball. The Lexington basketball team went winless in its first six games which were without Holt – he was recovering from a broken collarbone suffered in the first game of the football playoffs. Since he returned to the lineup, they have won seven and lost only one.
In college, however, Holt will only play football.
“I’m good at basketball, but I want to focus on football,” said Holt.
According to Holt, the Hokies have offered him a scholarship, which is why he is visiting next week. He may have to attend prep school before heading to college, however he is a very good prospect.
