Four-star QB Hendon Hooker commits to Virginia Tech

By

Virginia Tech and new coach Justin Fuente has added another quarterback with the commitment of junior Hendon Hooker from Dudley High (Greensboro, N.C.).

Hooker is rated as a four-star prospect by Scout.com and is a three-star recruit by 247Sports and Rivals.

His decision comes after a campus visit last weekend. He chose the Hokies over North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Missouri and Pittsburgh, among other offers.

“When we set foot on the big stage, on that game field, it just felt right,” he told ESPN Triad.

Hooker, the third commit in the Class of 2017 for the Hokies, passed for 2,234 yards and 17 touchdowns last fall and ran for 1,217 yards and 15 touchdowns.

His addition gives Virginia Tech a group of four quarterbacks on scholarship for the 2017 season: Jerod Evans, Dwayne Lawson, Joshua Jackson and Hooker.
