The Virginia Tech Hokies landed another commitment on Tuesday morning and this was one no one saw coming. Tray Curry, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound wide receiver from Bradley Central High in Cleveland, Tenn., picked the Hokies over Tennessee, Georgia, Auburn and a host of others.
For most of those who follow recruiting, the addition of Curry came as a surprise. The first thing that stands out about him is his massive size. A 6-foot-4 wide receiver in high school is impressive and Curry’s tape backs up that assertion.
Curry is a matchup nightmare at the high school level. He easily plucks jump balls from defenders, possesses strong hands and good athleticism.
He is the second wide receiver commitment in this class, joining Jaylen Jones. Latrell Neville was briefly committed before backing out of his pledge in June. After watching him and Neville, I believe Curry is the better prospect, at least with the highest upside.
Curry is an example of why you shouldn’t panic when it comes to recruiting wide receivers. WRs can be found throughout the entire process, early or late. Curry can help the Hokies early in his career. Of course, the coaching staff must keep him committed.
The Hokies first offered Curry back in August 2018.
Curry is recruit No. 14 for the 2021 class and helps bring the Hokies up to No. 42 in 247Sports composite team rankings.
