Here are some of the Signing Day storylines, from TSL recruiting analyst Chris Horne:
Will Drew Harris sign?
Harris tweeted recently that he is solidly with the Hokies, and on Monday he tweeted the following: “Only a few more days.”
It certainly appears as though the 6’1″, 210-pound running back will re-sign with the Hokies tomorrow, but this recruitment has had its share of twists and turns. Questions still remain if he will indeed make it to Blacksburg, but I don’t believe he would re-sign if he didn’t feel good about his chances.
Holland Fisher, Cequan Jefferson, and Daniel Reid are all exciting athletes with the potential to make an impact early on the major college level. All three are expected to sign with the Hokies tomorrow. The big question right now is when they will actually arrive on campus, as all three have academic concerns at this point and could well have to prep.
Fisher, a 6’2″, 200-pound safety out of Manchester (Midlothian, VA), and Reid, a 6’0″, 220-pound running back/athlete out of Thomas Dale (Chester, VA), are the most likely prep candidates. In fact, Fork Union was mentioned as a possibility for Reid back when he committed back in September.
Jefferson, a product of Henrico High School (Richmond, VA), is being recruited by the Hokies as a cornerback. Fisher is a safety, but outside linebacker could be in his future. Reid is being pursued as a running back but also has the versatility and ability to play receiver, safety, or linebacker.
All of Tech’s other recruits appear to be good to go in terms of qualifying.

The night before he makes it official and signs with childhood favorite Virginia Tech, Liberty (Bealeton, VA) defensive lineman Wyatt Teller will suit up for one more high school football game. He’ll compete in the International Bowl, which pits Team USA’s Under-19 team against high school age players from around the world. This is the event’s fourth year in existence.
Check out the 6’5″, 270-pound Teller and the rest of Team USA in action live at 9 pm EST on the CBS Sports Network. It can also be seen on replay tomorrow at 2:00 AM and 6:00 AM.
