Idk what source you're using for the reference to 11 P5 offers

If you're using 247, which is what I just scanned, his best offer is Virginia. And yes, UVA is a an offer that is on par with, or better than, our offer because UVA went to a top 6 bowl last year. We lost to Kentucky.

Regardless of whether the staff wanted him now, its not clear that he somehow isn't a diamond int the rough. He is a mid 3* player. If the staff wanted him that badly, then he allegedly fits their scheme and they view him as a top-tier player left on their board.

That is the definition of a diamond in the rough. We need to take this 3* player and hope that he competes against 4* and 5* offensive tackles to win games against better teams. Maybe by his senior or R-senior year, that will be the case. Who knows? Hence the "diamond in the rough."

And no, I'm not pleased with the recruiting results from this staff. It is what it is. Budgets are too low, insufficient staff support, etc. Whatever it is, I don't care. I simply had (admittedly, perhaps blindly) hoped for better results. I had hoped that Teerlink would lead to 4* players committing. Same with Tapp. Nada. This guy is a good player and I'm glad he wants to be a Hokie. But do I wish that we got some top-ranked players too? Obviously
