Scout300 WR Tahj Capehart announces for VT

Virginia Tech gained a big addition Saturday morning when four-star WR Tahj Capehart announced his commitment.

Two weeks ago, Bishop Sullivan (Va.) wide receiver Tahj Capehart made a commitment. But he wasn't quite ready to reveal his choice publicly.

On Saturday, he made it official. On air with 94.1 ESPN Radio in Virginia Beach, Capehart announced his commitment to Virginia Tech. Capehart had silently committed to the Hokies July 23 at their Blacksburg Bash.

Capehart, No. 294 in the Scout300, becomes commitment No. 15 for Virginia Tech in the 2017 recruiting class. He chose the Hokies out of a group of finalists that also included Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, Nebraska, North Carolina, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia.

Capehart was recruited primarily by assistant coach Zohn Burden, who's been recruiting Capehart since his freshman season.

With Capehart's addition, Virginia Tech now has commitments from four wide receivers. He joins three-stars Sean Savoy, Hezekiah Grimsley and Kalil Pimpleton. Three-star Caleb Farley is listed as a quarterback, but will likely play wide receiver for the Hokies.
