At least Five scholarship offers were given out by Virginia Tech’s football program last week, beginning on Monday, February 15, when head coach Justin Fuente extended an offer to Colorado athlete Dalton Keene. Three prospects from the state of Alabama — a state Coach Fuente recruited successfully at Memphis — landed Virginia Tech offers later on in the week. A defensive lineman out of Florida, also a state Fuente recruited at Memphis and a state Virginia Tech recruited under Frank Beamer, also picked up an offer from the Hokies.
Below is the rundown, with highlights, of those confirmed scholarship offers. Click here to check out our 2017 Target Board for a listing of all of the confirmed scholarship offers.
