On Wednesday evening, three-star quarterback Noah Kim out of Chantilly, Virginia (Westfield High School) announced that he has taken a step back from his commitment to Virginia Tech and has opened up his recruitment.
He took to twitter to inform the public of his decision, saying:
“After a long talk with my family, we’ve come to a conclusion to open up my recruitment and decommit from Virginia Tech. I would like to thank all the coaches for putting their time and effort into recruiting me, but this is the best decision for my future.”
The 6-foot-2 inch 170-pound passer originally committed to Virginia Tech on May 9, 2019. He holds offers from Fordham, Holy Cross, Howard, Sacred Heart, Western Michigan and William & Mary. Michigan State has reported interest in the one-time Hokies pledge.
He was on campus for an unofficial visit for Virginia Tech’s 43-41 victory over North Carolina in 6 overtimes. He decommits four days following his visit.
Kim is regarded as the No. 1443 overall recruit, No. 52 pro-style quarterback and No. 28 prospect out of the state of Virginia by the 247Sports Composite Rankings. His high school numbers are eye-popping. He has amassed over 5,000 passing yards and 80 touchdowns. He is also 37-1 as a starting quarterback with two state championship victories.
Kim has only lost one game during his high school career which was the semi-final where he injured his leg last fall.
