February has been good to the Virginia Tech football program, which has doubled its class of 2016 commitment total. The latest pledge is Hanahan (S.C.) junior wide receiver Sam Denmark, who pledged to the Hokies last night according to 247Sports and the Roanoke Times.

Denmark also earned an offer from Wake Forest before choosing Tech, where he visited on February 7 for the Hokies’ Junior Day.

The 6’0″, 175-pound prospect had 40 receptions for 912 yards in 12 games his sophomore season according to MaxPreps. As a junior, Denmark averaged 18.6 yards per reception in six games according to MaxPreps.

A standout in track as well as on the gridiron, Denmark finished second in the state in the 100 meters (a 10.92-second time) and third in the state in the 200 meters as a sophomore last spring. He helped Hanahan capture the 2014 state championship in the 4X400 relay.

Virginia Tech now has six commitments, including two from South Carolina, in total in the class of 2016. Three are projected to play cornerback, while the other three — QB Logan Byrd, WR Conner O’Donnell and Denmark — are projected to play on offense. With Denmark’s commitment, Virginia Tech’s 2016 season scholarship projection at wide receiver is as follows…

Seniors: Charley Meyer, Carlis Parker
Juniors: Isaiah Ford, Deon Newsome, Cam Phillips, David Prince
Sophomores: Jaylen Bradshaw, Kendrick Holland
Red-shirt Freshmen or Sophomores: Coleman Fox (RB or WR)
2016 COMMITS: Samuel Denmark, Conner O’Donnell

Virginia Tech didn’t take one true wide receiver in 2015, though Coleman Fox could end up as a slot receiver. Fellow 2015 recruit Chris Cunningham is more like an H-Back type, and he is listed as a tight end on Hokiesports.com. Tech now has two receiver commits in the class of 2016. I look for the staff to try and add at least one more receiver in this class.

  1. This kid is a football player with track star speed. What you can’t teach (speed) he has. What you can teach (blocking and using his hands and not his body to catch the ball) he does very well. This young man needs to get bigger and stronger during his senior year because he looks ready to play otherwise.

  2. He had to be in the pipeline before Zohn was added to staff – right ? Or is this his first recruit as a Hokie coach ?

  3. Contrary to the line from Hamlet, there is nothing rotten with the state of this Denmark! Somebody had to say it.

  4. Wow! Great hands and track star speed, a great combination. Welcome Mr. Denmark to VT. Can’t wait to see you play!

    1. Really, really like his ball skills. Good hands, and he really goes up after the ball. Plays taller than his listed height.

      1. I noticed that too. His QB doesn’t have the greatest arm strength, which means he’s gotten pretty good at jump balls.

        The RB on that team looks pretty fast too.

  5. Excellent. Welcome to Virginia Tech Samuel. We are glad to have you a part of Hokie Nation and know you’ll be a great addition to our program!!
