GW lineman Layth Ghannam commits to Virginia Tech

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — George Washington rising senior Layth Ghannam is the newest member of Virginia Tech’s recruiting Class of 2023. Ghannam announced his commitment to the Hokies Saturday morning.

Ghannam is a 6-foot-5, 290 pound offensive lineman who lists as a 3-star or 4-star prospect by various recruiting services. He earned Class AAA first team All-State honors in his junior season where he led the Patriots to an 8-4 record and a spot in the state quarterfinals. Ghannam played in all twelve games for GW. He made 49 tackles [11.5 for loss]. He also collected 6.5 sacks and had an interception return for a touchdown.

Ghannam recently narrowed his top four list to North Carolina, North Carolina State, Virginia Tech and West Virginia. He also received scholarship offers from Appalachian State, East Carolina, Eastern Kentucky, Cincinnati, Indiana, Jacksonville State, James Madison, Kent State, Marshall, South Carolina, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest.

Ghannam received an offer from Virginia Tech on January 29. His recruiting picked up momentum after an impressive junior season.
