Four-star TE/OT Michael Carmody has emerged as the second-best 2020 recruit in the state of Pennsylvania with a host of offers from power 5 schools including Virginia Tech, Penn State, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Recently, Carmody updated us on his recruitment including his fall visit plans.
Though Carmody doesn't have any visits currently scheduled, the four-star TE/OL hopes to visit Virginia Tech, Penn State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, and Duke this fall. Carmody specifically told us that the Hokies are a school that he wants to "visit again and see a game" at.
The Hokies offered Michael Carmody in late May
and have since "shown as much interest as they could’ve with all the recruiting rules," according to Carmody. That interest has clearly made an early difference in making VT a priority for a visit this fall.
Though Carmody is evaluated by 247 Sports and Rivals as an offensive tackle, he does have the versatility to play either tight end or offensive tackle at the collegiate level.
For now, the Hokies' focus will be setting up an unofficial visit with Carmody in the coming weeks as the four-star recruit begins to put together his fall visit schedule.
