One of the top corners in the country is no longer set to be a Hokie. 


​Cam'Ron Kelly, out of Chesapeake, Va., has decommited from Virginia Tech and opened his recruitment back up.


Kelly is a four-star cornerback and the seventh best player in the state of Virginia. He is a member of the class of 2019. 

​​Kelly has long been a target of the ​Clemson Tigers, as they were a team that was listed in his last eight before he decided to commit to the Hokies. Virginia Tech was surprisingly not a part of the eight schools. 


Kelly emphasized the efforts that Virginia Tech made when recruiting him, saying that “All of the coaches at Virginia Tech, they never stopped recruiting me. That spoke a lot about their character and how much they wanted me.”

​​The possible loss of Kelly would be a big blow to Virginia Tech, as he was the second best commit that they had in that class behind only Jaden Payoute, who can play multiple positions on both sides of the ball.


​Oklahoma and Clemson are two big-time programs to watch out for here moving forward. They were both among his finalists and are known as being national powerhouses. Penn State is also a team who will be ready to make a move.


The Nittany Lions only have one four-star cornerback from that class committed, while the Sooners have two corners of that caliber who have given their verbal pledge.
