Virginia Tech got its fourth and highest-ranked offensive line commitment in the 2023 class Saturday morning when Layth Ghannam, the top-ranked player in West Virginia, announced he’ll play for the Hokies.

Ghannam is ranked No. 436 nationally in the 247Sports Composite, making him the highest-ranked commitment in the Hokies’ class to date. He joins Gabriel Arena, Lance Williams and Hannes Hammer as commitments for new offensive line coach Joe Rudolph.

The 6-foot-5, 280-pounder plays at George Washington High in Charleston, West Virginia, and is the state’s second highly ranked offensive lineman to pick Tech in the past few years, joining Doug Nester (No. 2 in the state) in 2019, though Nester would later transfer to his home-state Mountaineers.
