Three-Star DT Robert Porcher Commits To Hokies

Virginia Tech's big weekend isn't over yet, as the Hokies added their fourth commitment in as many days, in Porcher.

Virginia Tech is officially on a recruiting roll. The Hokies now have four commitments in as many days.

Before he left Virginia Tech on his official visit yesterday afternoon, Dr. Phillips (Fla.) three-star defensive tackle Robert Porcher IV gave the Hokies more good news: he was committed. Porcher made that news official on Monday afternoon.

Porcher chose Virginia Tech over his other two finalists, Michigan State and Georgia Tech. He officially visited the Spartans last week. He committed to Nebraska on June 29, but opened up his recruitment in December.

Porcher was recruited primarily by assistant coach Galen Scott.

"My family liked it, it’s closer to home and I like how I fit in with the defense," Porcher told

This weekend marked Porcher's first visit to Blacksburg. But he already had a connection. His father, former NFL defensive lineman Robert Porcher III, played on the Detroit Lions with former Hokie Victor Jones. The younger Porcher said the families remain in touch.

Porcher said he is also now done with any visits and plans to sign with Virginia Tech on national signing day, Feb. 1.
