Virginia Tech nabbed its first verbal commitment of the 2020 cycle Friday afternoon. Atlee HS quarterback Tyler Warren committed to the Hokies per the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
[Warren] also had offers from Syracuse and Virginia. Because of his size and athleticism, some colleges liked him better at other positions. While Virginia Tech and Syracuse offered him as a quarterback, Virginia offered him as a tight end or defensive player, Warren said.
Tech offered last October and Justin Fuente had the opportunity to evaluate Warren in person at the Randolph-Macon College camp.
The 6-5, 210 pound southpaw's numbers represent those of an unpolished dual-threat signal caller.
Warren threw for 891 yards in nine games last year. He completed 79 of 166 passes for 7 touchdowns and 9 interceptions.
He also rushed for 80 yards per game.
As of now, Warren is unranked by the major recruiting services. Then again, the Hokies extended the offer early and watched him workout in person.
