Today was National Signing Day, and 14 new players signed LOI’s with Virginia Tech. They join the four players who enrolled in January as Virginia Tech’s 2013 recruiting class. Jerome Wright, who signed last February, enrolled in January and is counted as part of the 2012 class.
Virginia Tech’s class is headlined by a 5-star recruit and three 4-star recruits.
Kendall Fuller : 5-stars. #31 recruit nationally by 247Sports. #9 recruit nationally by Rivals. Fuller is the younger brother of Vincent, Corey and Kyle Fuller. He will play cornerback for the Hokies, and he’s a sure bet to see the field as a true freshman.
Wyatt Teller : 4-stars. #110 recruit nationally by 247Sports. #59 recruit nationally by Rivals. Teller is a big guy (6-5, 272), and he projects at either strongside defensive end or defensive tackle. He is physical, strong, and aggressive on the football field. Bud Foster said today, he’ll start out at defensive end.
Holland Fisher : 4-stars. #36 recruit nationally by 247Sports. #83 recruit nationally by Rivals. Fisher is a big-time athlete who could end up at free safety, rover or whip. Offered by Alabama, he stuck with his original commitment to Virginia Tech. If he qualifies academically, he has an excellent chance to play early. VT coaches indicated they’ll start him at safety.
Bucky Hodges : 4-stars. #114 recruit nationally by 247Sports. #171 recruit nationally by Rivals. Hodges will play quarterback for the Hokies. He stands tall in the pocket, and he’s a solid athlete for his size. Because of Tech’s current quarterback depth, he’ll have the luxury of redshirting and learning the system before he’s called upon to play.
Besides those guys, 247Sports also rates DB Charles Clark and ATH DJ Reid as 4-star recruits, we have them as 3-star recruits here on TechSideline.com. Reid is projected to play the running back position for Virginia Tech.
2012 4-star running back Drew Harris did not resign with Virginia Tech today. He still has NCAA Clearinghouse issues that he needs to overcome.
