Oakton High School linebacker Jack Tyler, a first-team All-Group AAA selection, has made an oral commitment to Virginia Tech.
Tyler, rated the No. 68 prospect in Virginia by The Roanoke Times, will begin his Tech career as a walk-on.
Tyler hopes to follow the same path as Cody Grimm, another Oakton product, who was a major contributor this season on the Hokies’ Orange Bowl champions.
Tyler, named first-team All-Metro by The Washington Post, had 138 tackles as a senior. He also intercepted six passes and had 10 pass break-ups.
