Stroman attended Stonewall Jackson High School in Manassas, Virginia. At Stonewall Jackson, he was a first-team 6A All-State selection. A 3-star recruit, Stroman committed to play football for Virginia Tech over offers from Campbell, Duke, Norfolk State, Old Dominion, UMass, Virginia, and Wisconsin.[1]

As a freshman, Stroman made an immediate impact for the Hokies on special teams as he fielded 36 punts for 249 yards.[2] In his sophomore season, he recorded 27 punt returns for 109 yards and collecting 24 tackles on defense.[2] In his junior season, Stroman tied for second in the ACC in both pass breakups (11, including one for a touchdown) and interceptions (four for 47 yards). He added 20 total tackles and 36 punts returned for 397 yards and two touchdowns on special teams.[2] Stroman ranks second all-time in Virginia Tech history with six career return scores, trailing just DeAngelo Hall (seven).[2] In the 2015 Independence Bowl against Tulsa, he had a career-long punt return of 67 yards.[2]
