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."
