The Virginia Tech Hokies received some big news on Sunday evening when four-star wide receiver Latrell Neville pledged to the Hokies.
This is a massive pickup for Virginia Tech.
Neville committed to the Hokies having never stepped foot on campus. He does have a visit planned for June 20, however, things could still change due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A 6-foot-3, 195-pound receiver, Neville is ranked as the No. 307 player in the nation for the class of 2021, per 247Sports. He plays high school football for Hightower High in Missouri City, Tx.
Yes, another Texan.
The first person to start the TX2VT movement was Dematrius Davis, an electric four-star passer from Houston. Shortly thereafter, Alec Bryant and Robert Wooten committed to Virginia Tech. Bryant and Wooten are members of the 2020 class, while Neville joins Davis as part of the 2021 class.
And, more good news could be coming for the Hokies as Neville’s commitment prompted a lot of positive momentum for Tech on Sunday night.
Neville has tremendous size. Once he arrives in college, he will need to add some bulk, but has an outstanding catch radius and strong hands. He is great with the ball in his hands and also shows the ability to track the football with ease.
Overall, it was a good Sunday for Virginia Tech and stay tuned, more good news could soon be on the way.
Neville is commitment No. 5 for the Hokies in 2021. Just this past week, Maryland safety Will Johnson pledged to the Hokies. The Hokies currently rank No. 19 in the 247Sports composite team rankings for 2021.
