After the camp, Alvarez, a 6-foot-5 310-pound offensive tackle, was separated from the group and spent some quality time with the coaching staff.
"After participating in the camp, I talked to Coach [Frank] Beamer and then I talked to Coach Newsome," said Alvarez. "They took me up to the new press box they just built. That was really cool."
Although it wasn't his first visit to campus, Alvarez, who is being recruited by Coach Bud Foster, left especially impressed.
"I like them a lot, I like them a lot now," said Alvarez. "[I like] the campus, where it's located at, the coaches and the players are really down to earth."
Alvarez, who hopes to make a verbal commitment early in his senior season, likes the Hokies so much that he has finally developed a favorites list and doesn't neglect to include Virginia Tech.
"I kind of have like a top three right now – Virginia Tech, Miami, and North Carolina," said Alvarez.
Back in June, Alvarez attended a camp at North Carolina. He has yet to visit Miami, but plans to make grant them an official visit.
All of the aforementioned schools have extended Alvarez a scholarship offer, plus Florida, Georgia, LSU, Maryland, NC State, Penn State, Temple, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.
A Scout.com four-star prospect, Alvarez is the 31st ranked offensive lineman by Scout.com.
During his junior season as Woodbridge (Va.) Hylton High School, Alvarez earned Associated Press All-State honors.
