Keshon Artis: Decision day - Today at 2 PM

Looks like its between us and UCF.

Would be a nice get; here is the 247 Story

Looks promising for us:

The three-star recruit was also considering NC State and Maryland before removing them from consideration over the past few weeks. He holds 16 scholarship offers.

In September of 2016, the first Virginia Tech crystal ball prediction was input for Artis and the predictions have stayed at 100-percent Virginia Tech since then, including a prediction from 247Sports' Director of Recruiting Steve Wiltfong.

According to 247Sports, Artis is a four-star linebacker and is the No. 212 overall prospect in the nation. The industry generated 247Sports Composite, Artis is listed as a three-star recruit and is the No. 13 player in Virginia for the 2018 recruiting cycle.

I thought that good juju was fairly public already?

-@no1hokie86

not according to Martavis Bryant

Sorry, to clarify, just making a joke about Ju-Ju Clayton lol whoops Smith-Schuster. Who is lighting it up for the Steelers much to the dismay of his teammate, Martavis Bryant. No actual commentary on Artis

My typical response here.

Edit: this is BAG and I'm a dumbass for not exiting out of this old ass account I forgot about.

Am I reading 247 wrong, or is Artis actually a 3*?

Recruit Prosim

He's a 3-star by the 247Sports Composite. 247Sports and ESPN both have him as a 4-star.

Thank you for the clarification. This means one of the other rating orgs have him lower?

Recruit Prosim

presumably, but it's also possible that the way the various ratings combine, it puts more guys ahead of him. The ratings aren't hard and fast, but the numbers of each level are, I believe. For instance, 24/7 wants to only have 32 five stars (to correspond with 32 1st round draft picks).

247sports -91, 4*. 5th in VA
Rivals- 5.5RR, 3*. 22nd in VA
Espn - 80grade, 4*, 8th in VA
And Scout.com just took me to his 247 page

Essentially to go from ESPN to 247 ratings just add 10

22nd on Rivals is ridiculous considering how weak Va is this year. There are 3-4 players Rivals has ahead of Artis who I do not know.

They have Akeem Smith 13th. He has offers from DelSt, Howard, Kent St, Fla Atl, Morgan set and Wofford.

Artis has 20 p5 offers. Twenty.

Rivals is dead to me.

Yeah Rivals analysis of the VA recruits this year are a joke. But hopefully after a commit to the good guys he will get a Rivals rankings bump.

Where is Lawson?!

LB position starting to look pretty good! The way Tech is landing recruits, is there a current or incoming LB that could move up front to DE to help shore the position up?

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

We've got some pretty good DE depth. Proctor, Garbutt, Belmar, Debose all FR or R-FR that have bright futures.

Always choose joy.

Now that I see the names I forgot how many youngins are waiting in the wings. So recapping our defensive needs, looking like last two positions to shore up are DT and CB. Offensively it is really only down to RB, OG, and OT. I think our TE, QB, and WR positions look like there are plenty of good options over the next 2-3 years.

I mean.. if anything I feel like we're just finally recruiting good linebacker depth for the first time in a while. We're pretty young this year behind Motu and Edmunds, an injury there would be pretty bad. Hopefully that's changing with the way we're recruiting now.

Awesome. I hope Dax joins him!

Cam'Ron Kelly also tweeted out "Smith to VT". May need some help embedding the tweet, not good with this fancy technology computer stuff.

Ben Smiley commented on Kelly's tweet too just saying "moves?" And Cam'ron responded with ๐Ÿ‘€.

(On mobile and don't know how to embed)

I will not get my hopes up...

Who is Smith? Or are they talking Oscar Smith?

Yea Oscar Smith High School.
