The Virginia Tech Hokies added another offensive linemen to the class of 2022 on Thursday when three-star offensive tackle Jakson LaHue announced his commitment.
The 6-foot-5, 285-pound LaHue plays at Azle High School in Azle, Texas. LaHue had offers from multiple Ivy League schools, meaning this is an impressive young man. Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth and Columbia were among LaHue’s offers. Virginia Tech was currently his only Power 5 offer, but there was heavy interest with Texas Tech.
LaHue is a prospect offensive line coach Vance Vice really liked. Vice has done well with under-the-radar recruits, and perhaps LaHue is his latest find. Most fans are going to see the offer list and roll their eyes. In most cases, that’s understandable. However, Vice deserves the benefit of the doubt in some of his evaluations.
LaHue is the type of prospect who doesn’t have to contribute immediately once he steps on campus in 2022. He has good size and a great frame. He took his official visit to Blacksburg last weekend.
LaHue is the third offensive line commitment for the Hokies in this class, joining Braelin Moore and Johnny Dickson. Moore is from Pennsylvania, while Dickson also hails from Texas.
I like taking my chances with three-star kids from Texas at any position.
Welcome to Blacksburg, Jakson.
