Position wise, it’s been an assortment for Good Counsel (Md.) 2019 three-star athlete Cam Hart (6-3, 190). He played wide receiver, safety and cornerback this season, and has recruiting looks at all three spots.

Hart’s recruitment is also still on the rise after he picked up his fifth offer earlier this week from Virginia Tech. Where he’ll play at the college level might not be certain, or even at which school. But Hart said he’s getting a feel for all his options, on and off the field.

“Honestly, right now, I don’t care,” Hart said. “But I definitely enjoy wide receiver because it’s new to me. I haven’t played it as long as I have DB. I love both positions and I could definitely play either in college.”

Though the Hokies offered Hart this week, a relationship had been built well before that. Hart even camped in Blacksburg this summer. The visit also gave him the chance to browse the campus and the surroundings.

“In all honesty, when I went to the camp, I felt like I didn’t show them enough to pull the trigger,” Hart said. “It feels really good to get it, man. I never knew I would get to this moment.

“I got a good glimpse at the campus and the football staff. From what I saw, it’s a great campus, nice facilities, everything that’s appealing to the school. It definitely did surprise me. That was my first time there.”

Hart, Rivals.com’s No. 11 player in Maryland for 2019, also watched Virginia Tech in person this fall. He was on hand for the Hokies’ win over West Virginia at nearby FedExField. Saturday, Hart said he’ll see his first game at Lane Stadium when Virginia Tech hosts Pittsburgh.

“It was a fun game overall,” Hart said of his time at FedExField. “Seeing them in person, I really got what I expected. I’ve watched them on TV. I didn’t think about it much. It was another football game to me, it just happened to be a school I was getting recruited by.”

Assistant coach Holmon Wiggins gave Hart his offer. The two have also been in regular contact since this summer.

“Ever since I can put my finger on it, he and I have been talking on a weekly basis,” Hart said. “Just a good relationship and it’s where we’re comfortable. I think he’s a real cool guy outside of football, too.”

The only other game Hart took in this fall was to nearby Maryland, when the Terps hosted Indiana. Maryland
