Myles Wolfolk earned honorable mention all-state honors as a sophomore at Largo High School (Upper Marlboro, MD), and the following April the talented cornerback received his first FBS scholarship offer from Clemson. By the time his junior season rolled around, Wolfolk, who transferred to Wise High School (MD) halfway through his sophomore year, had landed offers from Boston College and Illinois as well.
Virginia Tech entered the picture this past fall. The 6’1”, 185-pound junior reciprocated Tech’s interest and attended the Hokies’ season finale against Virginia this past November. It was his first ever experience at Tech.
“I really didn’t know what to expect. Cam Phillips, one of the wide receivers there, I had worked out with him and he told me about it before,” Wolfolk said.
“The game was so electric. I wanted to play in that game right there. I kind of just fell in love with it.”
Less than a month later, Wolfolk committed to the Hokies. He is currently Tech’s only defensive commitment in the class of 2016, joining quarterback Logan Byrd and wide receiver Conner ODonnell.
“It’s a great school, and when I went down there they showed me and my family a lot of love,” Wolfolk said of why he committed to Virginia Tech. “I read about the academics. The business program is one of the top in the NCAA. That was a helpful fact to know. Coach Beamer, him being there so long, and Coach Foster, him being there. And then Coach Gray, the defensive backs coach, has a history of putting defensive backs in the NFL. Not just any defensive backs, either. Those defensive backs are doing well. Kam Chancellor in the Super Bowl. By the time I get there I feel like it’ll be a good time for me because older guys are most likely going to be gone. It’s a good situation for me and my family. My family loved it.”
Wolfolk is still exploring other options, but it appears to be more precautionary than anything else at this point. He plans to return to Tech for a Junior Day event this month.
“I’m pretty much set with my commitment, but in case anything happens I’m still looking at the schools that have offered me. I’m doing my research, just in case anything were to happen where I’d lose my scholarship or something,” Wolfolk said.
