Virginia Tech added highly desired linebacker Keshon Artis to its 2018 recruiting class. Artis opted for the Hokies over finalists Central Florida and N.C. State. Artis also reportedly held offers from regional Power Five programs Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia. Artis has been a priority for the Hokies on the recruiting trail since they offered him way back in April 2016.
The 6-0, 230 pound Oscar Smith HS standout is, upon further photographic confirmation, indeed a linebacker.
The 247Sports Composite rates Artis as 3-star prospect. Although both 247Sports and ESPN rate him as a 4-star. Either way, he's racked up impressive stats during his senior campaign.
