Keshawn King Details His Virginia Tech Commitment: "I fell in love with the place"

The 2019 Sunshine State running back discusses his decision and on-the-field game.


Running back Keshawn King made his first visit ever to Virginia Tech on Friday. The occasion: the Blacksburg Bash, the Hokies' marquee summer recruiting event. The two-day stay was all it took to seal the deal. The Oakleaf HS (Orange Park, FL) rising senior committed Saturday afternoon.

"When I got there they showed me a lot of love," said King. "The coaches were very generous with how they treated me. The players there were also very nice and kind. Of course Virginia Tech is a very beautiful place, it made me feel like home when I was there. It was just a great fit. And the program they have is all set up for success. It was a great place for me to be."

King had an idea he might commit on the unofficial visit. Tech's coaches (namely Zohn Burden and Charley Wiles) had already won him over with plenty of sincere care and attention throughout his recruitment. All that was left was to check out Tech itself.
