Three-star cornerback Nasir Peoples committed to Virginia Tech on Wednesday night, giving the Hokies four total commits in their 2018 recruiting class.
The movement toward Blacksburg is continuing, much to the delight of head coach Justin Fuente.
After a successful first season with the Hokies, Fuente and his staff finished off the 2017 cycle with the No. 18-ranked class. Now, they’re laying a foundation for their 2018 haul.
On Wednesday night, 3-star cornerback Nasir Peoples committed to Virginia Tech. He chose the Hokies despite holding additional offers from Pitt and Rutgers.
The addition of the Warminster, Pennsylvania native gives the Hokies four total commits in the cycle, and they’re now sitting at No. 26 in the 2018 recruiting class rankings. All four of their commits are from out of state.
Peoples released a statement regarding his decision to give Virginia Tech his pledge.
“I would like to thank my family for guiding me and supporting me. I want to thank all of my coaches from weight and CYO football. Also, a special thanks to my high school coach Steve Devlin and the entire staff of Archbishop Wood. I am humbled and grateful to the college coaches that have shown interest in me. I am thankful and blessed to be announcing that I’m committed to Virginia Tech. Go Hokies!”
At 6’0″ and 185 pounds, Peoples shows impressive awareness in coverage and quick feet in his backpedal. The closing speed is there, and the ball skills are solid. He’s also reliable in run support, as he keeps his eyes up and drives through the ball carrier.
He’ll be a solid addition to the Hokies defense.
