Jack Hollifield Commits to Hokies

The 6-foot 3-inch, 225-pounder out of North Carolina chose the Hokies over offers from Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, NC State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and others.

Listed as the No. 24 inside linebacker prospect nationally, Hollifield has potential on the other side of the ball.

"Shibest really thinks I am a tight end, as of right now," he said over the summer.

"Whatever is going to get me on the field the quickest is what I'm cool with."

Their parents were really big fans of the series apparently

Loveddd that game.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

All right Fam! Great news!


Looking for an unbiased take, how talented is this kid?

Fire guy

Good athlete. Has played all over the field for his HS (DE, LB, TE, etc.) I think he's less of a sure thing at TE/H-Back than Ouzts or Dingle, but definitely has a lot of potential.

I think he's going to be an excellent addition in that blocking TE role. I really like his potential there more so that on the defensive side of the ball. I really liked his motor watching him live in the HS championship game last year

Not a film expert but not sure how well he moves in space. I sort of like him as a strong side end. Regardless, he's a good person for the coaches to figure out in terms of a combo of athletic ability and body type that lends itself to a few different roles.

Yay finally!!!!

Edit: wonder if he gets re-rated at TE. I recall 247 dinged his rating like 4 or 5 points when they changed his eval from ATH to ILB

That's impressive especially since it's happened under Beamer and the guy who followed Beamer.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Flashback to when Jack got that UVA offer


Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

I remember that. How glorious!

I like his attitude of "I will do whatever I can for the team. They can put me where they need me most."

Bit of interesting news...sounds like Hollifield is moving to OL.

Given this is a legacy recruit that the staff has been recruiting for several years and he's been on campus for less than a semester, this is a little odd but I trust Vice and Shibest to make the best decision for him.

@French, what are you thinking here based on his HS film? 6-3 225lbs doesn't seem like the starting point for future OT but what do I know. If he's anything like his brother, I know he won't have trouble putting on 80 lbs over the next couple of years.

bruh dont give me a heart attack like that

FWIW, hokiesports has him listed at 243 lb, still doesnt seem like a great starting point for a college OL

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

Start a new thread. It doesn't cost anything.
