The Virginia Tech Hokies continue to add players to their 2022 recruiting class as three-star offensive lineman Braelin Moore announced his commitment on Saturday.

He is the third commitment in the 2022 class, all of which have committed this month. Tight end Harrison Saint Germain picked the Hokies earlier this week.

Moore, a 6-foot-3, 290-pound guard from Freedom High in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, has an older brother on the team. Kaden Moore was a member of the class of 2020 and really impressed the coaching staff in practice last fall.

The Hokies officially offered Moore last month, and he currently has 14 total offers.

Moore has outstanding size already and will remain on the interior of the offensive line at the next level. In speaking with Brian Dohn of 247Sports after his commitment, he cited several factors, including offensive line coach Vance Vice.

“He’s just a great guy,” Moore said. “He has put a lot of linemen into the NFL. There is a projected first-round draft pick this year, and the No. 1 rated guard in the NFL is from V-Tech, so I really feel like he knows what he’s doing and is a great o-line coach.”

Of course, playing with his brother was an important element in his decision, too.

“He (Kaden) told me, ‘This place is home,’ “ Moore said.

The Hokies are expected to focus heavily on the offensive line in this class, with several upperclassmen currently featured in the two-deep.

This is another solid pickup for the Hokies. Kaden Moore was an under-the-radar addition in 2020, and he really impressed the coaching staff last season and is on track to play early in his career.

The Hokies obviously see a similar future for Braelin Moore.

After Moore's commitment, this is another instance where a younger brother follows his older brother to Virginia Tech.
