The Hokies are heating up on the recruiting trail.

On Tuesday night, Virginia Tech added another commitment to its 2019 recruiting class. Tight end Nick Gallo opted for the Hokies over regional offers from Duke, Maryland, Boston College, and Pittsburgh among other Power 5 programs.

Gallo detailed the reasoning behind his decision to 247Sports.

"I felt very comfortable – with the staff down there being one of the biggest things," Gallo said. "It was hard to compare other schools, and then look back and compare it back to how well I knew everyone at Virginia Tech.

"I also felt that VT is going to put me in the best position to maximize my potential and win as many football games as possible, and that was something I really looked forward to."

Gallo is the younger brother of former Tech center Eric Gallo.

The 247Sports Composite rates the 6-4, 225 pound Council Rock South HS (Holland, PA) product as a 3-star (0.8721) tight end.

3-star 2019 DT Norell Pollard went public with his Virginia Tech commitment on Monday night. The Hokies added 4-star WR Jaden Payoute to their class on June 10. And 4-star CB Cam'Ron Kelly turned heads when the 757 standout pledged to Tech back on June 7. With 3-star OG Riley Simonds scheduled to announce his decision on June 20, and 3-star WR Tayvion Robinson teasing "big news" on June 24, both priority recruits for Tech, the Hokies are poised to close out June with a bang.

I would guess he was one of the silent commits but I'm sure I'll be corrected if not.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

He's on Fire! 🔥🔥🔥

VB born, class of '14

This is 2 days in a row, so technically he's only heating up at this point.

I'm here for the memes, I just stay for the football.

Assuming this wasn't a previously silent commit either?

Welcome Nick! With a TE room of Keene, Cunningham, Deiuliis, Mitchell, and now Gallo, we will have the best group of TE's in VT history!

O line ain't looking bad either. Go get 'em Vice! We get a stud RB, and we will have us a top 10 offense.

In Bud we trust

Was he a silent tho

Can he play DB?

it's turning out to be a great month.

Future OT there *ducks*

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"

KCCO

or QB...?

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

okay a couple things! 1st! ALLLLLLLLL the brothers!!!!!

2nd, im starting to think there is NOOOOO way "the numbers always work out" it seems like we have 10000 commits lol

but I am loving the momentum! this thing is starting to snowball get on or get ran over!

#Bapn ain't EZ

Wanna win put boobie in! Let boobie spin coach!

Technically not "ALLLLLLLLL". Oldest brother played for Maryland.

Sorry, had to be that guy.

Danny Coale Caught That Ball!!!

Looks like he has great hands and some speed. Like how they split him out wide as a jumbo WR

'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'

The Tyler Eifert (of Notre Dame) package. Worked great for them, hopefully he can blow by some LBs as well.

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

His brother left his entire heart and his mark on the football battlefield. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, this kid is gonna be special. A picture as a reminder and for the feels:

Welcome Home, Nick!

Pain is Temporary, Chicks Dig Scars
Glory is Forever, Let's Go Hokies!!

Forgot about that. What an awesome moment, and incredible game. That one will go down in history as an all time great ending for myself, I can only imagine what that's like as a player's final home game.

it's even better with Titanic music

Chills every time

I was watching this game yesterday on hokietapes/YouTube. What a great way for those seniors to end their last home game!

I'm still partial to Sweet Caroline, but it's all good.

was he a silent y/n

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Jerod Evans, Michael Brewer, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

Welcome to Hokie Nation!!

I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them!

So when does he move to QB?
