In what’s been a good recruiting week for Virginia Tech, the Hokies are hoping to hear more good news sooner rather than later from offensive lineman Tyran Hunt.

Hunt, a 3-star tackle from Courtland, VA., has listed Virginia Tech in his top seven schools, and he really likes the Hokies.

“I love the feel, I love the energy there,” Hunt said. “They have a great coaching staff and I just love the campus in general. I can really picture myself being there.”

Hunt said his last visit was Virginia Tech’s Spring Game, and that he enjoyed touring the campus, academic and athletic facilities and meeting with the coaches. Hunt says he likes that Offensive Line Coach Vance Vice, with whom he speaks with the most, is an honest man.

“He’s very straightforward,” Hunt said. “He’s genuine and he’s a man of his word. I really respect that, as a man and as a coach. He knows what he’s talking about and he definitely has a vision.”

Hunt, who stands at 6-foot-7 and 280-pounds, currently plays both offensive tackle and defensive end/tackle for Southampton High School. He says that the Hokies are recruiting him to play on the offensive line, but that he’ll play wherever the coaches need him.

“Wherever I best fit,” Hunt said. “Most schools are recruiting me for the offensive line so it just depends on the school and where I fit best. If Coach wants me to play offense, I’ll play offense. It’s up to him, I’m willing to do whatever gets me on the field faster.”

Hunt is hoping to continue to grow as an athlete and improve his footwork on both the offensive and defensive line.

“I’ve gotten a lot stronger,” Hunt said. “I’ve gotten bigger and faster, kind of starting to fit the part. There are a lot of things I need to work on such as foot placement, how agile I move, just basically footwork things that I can really use as an advantage at the next level. Those are some of the things I’ve been keying on to make me a better player.”
