Virginia Tech signed 26 recruits to letters of intent on Signing Day.  The Hokies came out on the short end of the stick with a couple of prospects who announced on Signing Day, but they also picked up two key pieces of their class today.

Note that Holland Fisher and DJ Reid are not included on our list because they originally signed with Tech last season.

Early this morning, Virginia Tech lost 4-star recruit Derrick Nnadi to Florida State.  It was a disappointing end to his recruitment, as the Tech staff put more work in with him than arguably any other recruit.

Also selecting Florida State was 4-star wide receiver Javon Harrison, who had been “committed” to Virginia Tech since 2012.  However, anyone who read Harrison’s quotes over the last year had a pretty good idea what was coming.  His commitment was a soft as a commitment gets.

On the other hand, the Hokies got 4-star receiver Isaiah Ford over Louisville, South Carolina, Florida and Miami this afternoon.  They also received an LOI from 4-star linebacker Raymon Minor, who had offers from Clemson, Nebraska, Ohio State, Wisconsin and other major programs.

Counting the players who enrolled in January, Virginia Tech signed six four-star recruits (according to the TSL rankings)…

DE/DT Vinny Mihota
RB Shai McKenzie
LB Raymon Minor
DT Ricky Walker
LB Melvin Keihn
WR Isaiah Ford

The Hokies signed at least one player at every position, and nearly managed to recruit an entire starting lineup of players.  One more offensive linemen would have made it a complete starting lineup.
