Virginia Tech Inks 16 To 2024 Class On Early Signing Day

In welcoming receiver Keylen Adams to the fold during the Hokies’ live signing day show Wednesday, Virginia Tech coach Brent Pry referenced some big-hitter schools that came along late to inquire about the rigidity of the four-star’s commitment.

“All them other schools came calling,” Pry said. “The Ohio Staters, the Nittany Cryin’s …”

It was a reference to a tight game Penn State lost to Ohio State a few years back when Pry was the Penn State defensive coordinator and ESPN’s cameras randomly zoomed for a close-up on Pry’s sad-looking wife, Amy, in the crowd with the caption “Nittany Cryin’.”

The comment was a light-hearted poke (he still respects the heck out of James Franklin, crediting his former boss for a lot of the recruiting tactics Tech takes), though it signaled a bit more firm recruiting standing on the home front for the Hokies, who officially landed four top-15 signees from Virginia in its 2024 class on Wednesday — Adams, defensive lineman Gerard Johnson, receiver Chanz Wiggins and cornerback Joshua Clarke — for the first time since 2018.
