Virginia Tech's next bit of good recruiting news maybe be coming soon. Four-star LB Alan Tisdale has set an announcement date.
The four-star will announce a college decision between five finalists in just over a week, July 1. Louisville, Mississippi, NC State, and Notre Dame are the finalists, along with the Hokies.
The No. 19 outside linebacker nationally and No. 13 rising senior in North Carolina has made multiple visits to Virginia Tech - including one for the annual spring game, at which time it seemed a possibility he'd pull the trigger for the Hokies. He's a friend (and occasional high school rival) of current commits Tre Turner and DJ Crossen, who attend high schools in the Greensboro, N.C. area. The product of Page High School would be VT's fifth from North Carolina, with RB Nadir Thompson and DL Joe Kane also hailing from the Tar Heel State.
VT has been considered the favorite for quite some time, but will have to wait just over a week to find out its fate.
