Virginia Tech Football Recruiting: Norell Pollard Commits to the Hokies

Tech taps the Sunshine State to add a defensive tackle to its 2019 recruiting class.

[@rell_honcho]

Virginia Tech added its first defensive lineman to its 2019 recruiting late Monday night. Defensive tackle Norell Pollard accelerated a planned July 1 commitment and opted for the Hokies over fellow finalists Central Florida, Rutgers, Duke, West Virginia, Indiana, Louisville, and N.C. State.

"Last but not least I want to thank all the schools that have recruited me thus far and wish nothing but the best for their programs," Pollard tweeted. "It was a hard process but I found my home."

The 247Sports Composite ranks the 6-2, 265 pound Wekiva HS (Apopka, FL) standout as a 3-star (0.8696) SDE.

Pollard is fresh off an "amazing" June 10 weekend Virginia Tech visit.

Nice, get after them big uglies!

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
“I served in the United States Navy"

Hopefully we can pull two more DT in this class to let this kid redshirt and run laps between D2, the bathroom, and the weight room.

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

Good choice! Good kid! Good last name! Reminds me of summers in Tidewater eating at Pollard's Fried Chicken with those amaze little donut roll things.

I appreciate all the support, and I appreciate all the hate I am getting. I will continue to work as hard as I can to be the best I can be and bring this team a championship. Go Hokies 🐔 - Josh Jackson

Off topic, but I just watched the most recent Thor for the first time. God it is sooooo much better than the previous two Thor movies.

So much humor, great visuals, and Thor isn't so dang serious in it. And it has Goldblum which is an automatic plus.

that's what happens when you let a kiwi direct a marvel movie. Flight of the Conchords level humor makes everything better.

Really hope they have Taika Waititi director more. Reminded me a bit of James Gunn's work in the Marvel universe.

At 6-2, 265 he looks like he has the build of a LB.

'Its easy to grin, when your ship comes in, and you've got the stock market beat,
but the man worthwhile, is the man who can smile, when his shorts are too tight in the seat'

So he'll be playing QB in a couple years? Got it.
