Last Thursday, Virginia Tech picked up a commitment from 6-3, 205-pound wide receiver recruit Zach Luckett . A standout for Holy Spirit High School in Absecon, N.J., the 3-star prospect chose the Hokies over Boston College as well as many more scholarship offers from Division 1A programs. As a senior this year, he rushed for over 1,000 yards (from the tailback spot) in leading Holy Spirit to an 8-2 overall record.
We caught up with Zach to discuss his verbal commitment to the Hokies as well as how he plans to prepare for his freshman year at Virginia Tech. He believes he will arrive in Blacksburg around July of next year.
