Stockbridge (Ga.) coach Kevin Whitley breaks down new VT commit Jalen Holston

It's been a big senior season for Holston and now, it's capped off with a commitment to the Hokies. But what are they getting? His coach gives all the details.

Evaluation notes:  Jalen Holston is a 5-foot-11, 202 pound running back out of Stockbridge (Ga.).  Holston is a strong running back who runs with authority and power.  He does not do a lot of dancing around, but when he gets the ball, he hits the hole, he gets up the field and he does not play around.  He is a decisive runner.  He sticks his foot in the ground and goes.  He has a great frame, he shows good balance and he can get those yards after initial contact.  He is not a back with a lot of wiggle, but a back who gets downhill in a hurry.  He is an athlete who has also shined at linebacker on the next level and he runs with that defensive mentality.  Holston is a back who can run, catch and make the big play.  He has the ability to see the field on the next level.

Recruiting notes:  Holston is committed to Virginia Tech.
