Virginia Tech Football Recruiting: Alan Tisdale Commits to the Hokies

#NC2VT nets the Hokies a linebacker prospect.


Virginia Tech added another highly sought after North Carolina prospect to its 2018 recruiting class. Linebacker Alan Tisdale committed to the Hokies on Saturday over finalists N.C. State, Louisville, Ole Miss, and Notre Dame. The 247Sports Composite rated the 6-4, 211 pound Page HS (Greensboro, NC) product as a 3-star prospect. Rivals evaluated him as a 4-star talent.

"He's a hybrid-type guy who's got a big frame, long arms is real rangy and he's got the ability to cover," then Page head coach Kevin Gillespie told The Key Play in April. "I think that's what separates him."

Tisdale previously told The Key Play Bud Foster believes he projects to Tremaine Edmunds' backer spot.

Tisdale joins Tar Heel state products: 3-star DL Joe Kane, 4-star WR Tre Turner, 3-star DB D.J. Crossen, and 3-star CB Nadir Thompson to commit to the Hokies this cycle. Tisdale hopes to help Virginia Tech add to its haul.

"The 'NC to VT' movement is amazing," said Tisdale. "We got Tre and DJ already and Nadir Thompson. We're really trying to get KJ Henry. I plan on really recruiting hard too."



Love the clip, but it leaves out what I think is the best line: "I'm having a hard time holding these alligators down"

So, you're our Paulie Walnuts gif guy now.

Bada Bing.

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

If needed I will be the Knight.

Upon hearing a stud LB committed to VT, Narduzzi had this to say:

Thank you.

I think we are going to see a lot of this! and enjoy every minute of it.

Welcome Home Alan! So happy for you and your family! Another great addition to this class and the fam! GO HOKIES!


Mmmmyeah, but he has time to learn.


You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

Looks right to me

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.


You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

Steps to doing business on global clock:

1) Wake up at 3:30 am for conference call
2) Check TKP as first port of call on the vast Internet ocean
3) See another baller commit to the Hokies
4) All of the sudden its midnight and crush your negotiation
5) return to bed with dreams of opposing qb's taking dirtnaps in the backfield

Check, check, check, check and I'm gonna assume, check


I only remember reading that Tisdale and Crossen are cousins, could be wrong though.


He's heavily pursued by some top notch programs and is having fun with the process. He clearly thinks a lot of Virginia Tech, but I'll believe I know where he's going when he signs an LOI!

That said, I think he's worth a lot of effort.

I saw on r/CFB today that a lot of Clemson people seem to think he's a silent commit to them. I would be so happy if we pulled him, I just don't think it's very likely.

Wouldn't surprise me. I'm just glad VT is being mentioned.

Klemp$on has the successful young head coach, a shiny new Natty trophy and a ridiculous new 140,000 square feet athletic center with too many amenities to list. VT only has one of those three. We are going to lose a few recruiting battles in this arena. Just need to beat them on the field to begin fixing this disequilibrium.

And my brother decided to have a wedding that day...

That team sure did suck last night. They just plain sucked! I've seen teams suck before, but they were the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.

In my defense, the last time I had to miss a game due to a wedding, we were at OSU

That team sure did suck last night. They just plain sucked! I've seen teams suck before, but they were the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.

Months ago I drunkenly agreed to a concert that night. Mrs. Lwyr bought tickets while we were wasted.

Quietly hoping it's a sell out and we can flip the tix for enough profit to get her on board with selling them.

I've been drinking.
