The Virginia Tech summer recruiting surge continued on Saturday afternoon when three-star wide receiver Tucker Holloway pledged to the Hokies.
Holloway is a 6-foot-3, 178-pound pass-catcher from Andrews, North Carolina, who plays his high school football at Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School.
COMMITTED! Thankful to be part of Hokie Nation! Thank you to everyone who helped me in any way to get to where I am today, I’m forever grateful. Time to get to work. @CoachFuente @Jafar_Williams @CoachSturdivan1 pic.twitter.com/sFWHVVZTGf— Tucker Holloway (@TuckerHolloway1) July 3, 2021
Holloway, who officially visited Blacksburg in June, chose the Hokies over Iowa State. He currently has 11 offers, and that number will grow in the fall once schools see him on the field in his senior season. Holloway is fast and has camped for multiple schools this summer. Some will want to see that timed speed on the field, and when they do, he will pick up more offers.
This is a good get for the Hokies. They found Holloway early and recruited him hard. He offers a good blend of size and speed and profiles as an outside receiver in college.
I love this move, and I am glad the Hokies could get Holloway’s pledge. It will likely be a battle to keep him in the end, as it could for some of Virginia Tech’s other under-the-radar commitments in the 2022 recruiting class.
Holloway is commitment No. 15 for the 2022 class, which now ranks No. 23 in 247Sports team composite rankings.
More good news could be on the way on July 4.
Welcome to Blacksburg, Tucker.
