The 2006 football recruiting ride was a wild one. When it became apparent
early on that the top-rated players in the state of Virginia were casting their
eyes beyond the borders of the Commonwealth, Virginia Tech’s recruiting took a
more out-of-state focus than usual. The Hokies continued their efforts to build
inroads in the mid-Atlantic states that they now consider their recruiting
grounds, but they also relearned the lesson that once you get outside of
Virginia, the going gets rough for Virginia Tech.

Using Rivals.com’s comprehensive recruiting rankings, the Hokies landed right
about where they usually do. (These figures are taken off of Rivals at 11 am
Thursday.)
