BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) -- The Hokies put the finishing touches on their 2019 signing class which included a late flip. Coach Justin Fuente and his staff got Huntington, West Virginia lineman Doug Nester to switch his commitment from Ohio State.
Nester is a four start offensive lineman who also played D-line in high school. He's the highest rated offensive lineman to ever join the Hokies. The 6-6, 305-pounder brings a lot to the table in Blacksburg.
"He's a good student. He's diligent. One of the reasons why he stayed back was to play basketball with his friends this season which I think is pretty cool. Also, he gets up at five in the morning to get his lift in. He's a big guy and he's a big driven person and he cares about relationships and he's a hard worker," Virginia Tech Head Coach Justin Fuente said. "You combine that with some talent and, he's got size and athleticism and I think he was raised really well by his parents and I think you have a chance for something special."
