Since receiving an offer last summer, four-star recruit Jordan Dingle from Bowling Green, Kentucky has emerged as a top tight end target for Virginia Tech in the 2021 class. Dingle has also shown lots of interest in the Hokies with Tech in great shape early on in his recruitment.

Jordan Dingle told us that Virginia Tech is among five schools currently standing out in his recruitment along with Ohio State, Kentucky, Louisville, and South Carolina. Dingle explained to us why the Hokies are currently standing out in his recruitment.

"It's because of how heavily the coaches are reaching out to me and the love I get from them," Dingle said.

Additionally, Dingle told us that the Hokies are among the five schools recruiting him the hardest alongside Ohio State, Louisville, Kentucky, and Purdue.

Leading the charge for the Hokies for Dingle is TEs coach James Shibest who offered Dingle last summer. The two have built what Dingle describes as a "good relationship" telling us that him and Shibest have gotten "pretty close" over the past several months.

Dingle has also taken notice of how Virginia Tech uses their tight ends in versatile ways saying that it has a "huge impact" on his view of Tech and he loves "how they utilize them."

Dingle told us that he is currently planning on visiting Virginia Tech February 1st. The 1st of February is currently setting up to be a major Junior Day for the Hokies with 2021 four-star DE Landyn Watson also an expected visitor in addition to Dingle.

Looking ahead, Jordan Dingle laid out his timeline for when he currently plans to trim down his recruitment and make a decision. He also knows one school that will make the cut when he trims down his list.

"Hopefully, I'll trim down my list by April and make a decision middle to late summer," Dingle said. "I know Virginia Tech is certain to make the cut."

Virginia Tech is a top contender for Jordan Dingle with the Hokies having a great opportunity to make another strong impression this spring.
