We have less than one month until Signing Day 2006. Stay tuned to, as we will continue to provide regular updates on remaining targets as well as Countdown to Signing Day articles. Taking the place of the War Rooms for this month, the Countdown to Signing Day articles includes a brief summary of the class to date, recent developments and a look at the remaining targets still in play.

Recent Commitments and Future Decision Dates…

LBs Jarrell Miller and Brandon Spikes will announce their respective decisions on Saturday during the Army All-American Bowl game. The game will be televised by NBC and begins at noon.

Current Class…

Including Fork Union wide receiver Todd Nolen, who signed with Virginia Tech last February, the Hokies have 15 commitments for the 2006 class. RB/CB Devin Radford and WR Jacob Sykes may both grey-shirt and, if they do, could be applied either to the 2006 recruiting class or the 2007 class. OL Aaron Brown will enroll this month.

Of Tech’s 15 commitments, eight project initially on offense. This includes three offensive linemen, which is a big need in this year’s class. Of the seven prospects projected on defense, four project to play along the defensive line (Daryl Robertson and Doug Thacker at defensive tackle; Mike Gee and John Graves at defensive end).


Here is the remaining calendar up until the February 1st Signing Day. Coaches can make in-home visits and recruits can make official or unofficial visits during the Contact Period. Recruits can make official and unofficial visits but coaches cannot make in-home visits during the Quiet Period. Only phone call contact (one per week per recruit) is allowed during the Dead Period.

Contact Period: January 2–7

Quiet Period: January 8

Dead Period: January 9-12

Quiet Period: January 13-14

Contact Period: January 15-28

Quiet Period: January 29

Dead Period: January 30-February 2

Signing Day 2006: February 1st

Remaining Targets by position…

I like Virginia Tech’s positioning the most right now with DE Jason Adjepong, OL Hutch Eckerson, DB Mario Edwards, RB LeSean McCoy , RB Brandon Minor, WR/CB Brent Vinson, DE Brian Whitmore and LB Matt Wright. It is in solid shape
