  1. Some of these look like they may have a WV geographic feel to them……maybe Brian Mitchell is behind a number of these offers. Go get’em!

  2. Would really help if Target Board included each recruits home town and state. Like to follow the Va. recruits but difficult to remember all. Pain to have to go into each recruits page to see where from. Here’s hoping….

  3. We now have a coach and a staff that “get’s it”. We all can admit that Frank just didn’t have it in him the last 4-5 years to pound the recruiting trail as needed.

    1. Let’s wait until Coach Fuente delivers his first class before we declare success. I like what I’m seeing so far, but we have a really long time to go before signing day 2017.

  4. Love the company we are keeping with these recruits. While we are working on taking back VA, we must bring in outside talent to reestablish a winning culture at the ACC championship level. A higher level of winning will help attract the elite in-state talent which we have been missing on in recent years.
    Now, let’s get out more LB offers. I would be looking in OH, PA, SC and FLA.

  5. These offers are just awesome. Future football recruiting results WILL be better because the current staff is casting a much bigger net and not just recruiting VA and the surrounding markets. Very impressed with the energy and devotion of the new football staff. It truly is a new era of Hokie football.

    1. Have to own VA and get a few from other states. Love the idea that we are going after kids that are being recruited by the big names. The only thing you can be assured of is that kids you don’t offer won’t come.
