Adams has the potential to be another great 757 Hokie.

Virginia Beach WR Keylen Adams commits to the Hokies

Some can argue that some of Frank Beamer's best years at Virginia Tech would not have been possible without the help of some electrifying 757 recruits. Michael Vick, Tyrod Taylor, and Kam Chancellor hailed from the seven cities of Hampton Roads. The road to success goes down Interstate-64, and that’s where Brent Pry and staff went to secure a commitment from dominant wideout Keylen Adams. Adams, a 6”2’, 185lb, is a one-of-a-kind route runner that can create space for big plays. He is a consensus 4-star recruit. He is ranked as the fourth best player in Virginia, as well as the 20th ranked WR in his class by ESPN.

Adams had his pick from virtually any school in the nation, and he didn’t waste any time making that statement true. After his freshman season he got offers from UNC, VT, Ole Miss, Penn State, and Michigan. He got offers from the best programs in the country during this spring evaluation period. He was offered by Alabama, Ohio State, and South Carolina during that time. He narrowed his list down to Alabama, South Carolina, and the Hokies.

He took official visits to Alabama and Virginia Tech and took an unofficial to the home of the Gamecocks.

Keylen Adams played his high school ball for the Green Run Stallions (Virginia Beach). The Stallions outright dominated their opponents in the regular season, out scoring them 513-67. They won a state championship in the 5th division. Adams had 55 catches for 1064 yards and 16 scores. Adams played both sides of the ball for Green Run, where he anchored the free safety spot and added a boost to the coverage unit.

Adams pairs his crisp route running with being able to make plays at all three levels of the field. He can make catches in the flat and get yards after the catch as well as anybody. He makes the DB have to sell out for the short routes and then runs past them with a double move for six. He was a first team All-Tidewater wide receiver and he is one of the best route runners out of Hampton Roads in recent memory. Adams has the skills to be a huge addition to the WR room and he has a chance to get 1st team reps early in his career

This is a massive recruiting win for Fontel Mines and others. The 757 is of the utmost important for the VT staff and it is refreshing to see the Hokies have success in the area.


Been a Hokie as long as I can remember. My Logan Thomas jersey number matched my age at the time of the photo. Love following Hokie Sports and recruiting.

My favorite VT Sports memory was when myself my dad and my grandpa were seated just above the VT sideline as Quincy Patterson barreled into the endzone to seal the 6OT win Vs UNC

Go Hokies!!
