247 Sports ranks Etute as the No. 45 inside linebacker in the 2021 class and a top 50 prospect in the state of Virginia.

Etute picked Virginia Tech over a host of other programs, including ACC rival NC State and East Carolina. Virginia and Wake Forest also made offers.
Virginia Tech’s 2021 recruiting class is now up to 13 commitments, though its national profile is a little underwhelming. The Hokies currently sit 49th in terms of 247’s team rankings.
