Virginia Tech Football Recruiting: Mario Kendricks Commits to the Hokies

The Hokies add a defensive lineman to their 2019 recruiting class.

Mario Kendricks made a visit to Virginia Tech earlier in June. [@22problemsss]

It's a super Saturday for Virginia Tech; Mario Kendricks committed to the Hokies.

The 6-1, 275 pound defensive lineman opted for Tech over fellow finalists Georgia Tech, Virginia, Louisville, Wake Forest, Iowa State, and N.C. State. The 247Sports Composite rates the Osceola HS (Kissimmee, FL) product as a 3-star (0.8560) strong-side defensive end. Kendricks figures to grow into a defensive tackle for the Hokies.

Kendricks makes it seven 2019 cycle verbal commitments for Virginia Tech in June. Outside receiver, 3-star, Jacoby Pinckney made the call for the Hokies on June 26. Three-star WR Tayvion Robinson revealed Virginia Tech as his college destination on June 24. Three-star 2019 TE Nick Gallo picked Tech on June 19. Three-star 2019 DT Norell Pollard went public with his Virginia Tech commitment on June 18. 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.


He seems to have that fast twitch and could be a great 1-2 punch with Goode! Welcome to Hokie Nation Mario!

Love this commitment. Welcome aboard, Mario!

Don't look now, but Fu and Bud are building a team. We might not have #Swag and may be boring to some, but brick by brick, impact players want to play for VT. Love it.

Ah, nm, wrong comment.

Building from VTJ12's post, the hashtag for this recruiting class should be #brickbybrick....let's keep building fam!

Exit Light, Enter Night....Go Hokies

Or #stonebystone for hokie stone

This kid fits what Wiles likes in a DT, quick first step and has aggressive use of his hands. Once Hilgart gets ahold of him watch out.

1-0 every week

Love. I'm not the evaluator French is but I really think he's going to excel here.

I'll have to take your Word on that

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

That's a good Outlook to have.

Especially with some of the insider Access and information he has to the program

Your avatar gets me every time.

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 πŸ” - Josh Jackson

I was like, i know we are doing puns, but we aren't talking about Fords. What is it? Then Bing, it hits me, and i get it. Been out of the Office this Friday, sorry it took me a while.

He could become a real power. Point is, Bud's got a good one, he just needs to learn from the master.

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

I sometimes fly by the comments and completely missed this subthread. You guys were certainly able to Paint the picture for me! Thanks!

I think he has a great VISIOn for what he wants to do while in Blacksburg

We really need the scout team to be a topFlight Simulator of FSU's offense.

I see this guy blowing up a loooooooot of plays. Crazy lower body strength to be 17yrs old. It's going to get even better when gets on the hilgart program

Hokie Love!

I like what I see. Blowing up plays like a Tim Settle but with serious jets too.
