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.
