Despite a slow finish, Virginia Tech’s 2006 recruiting class turned our
pretty well. In fact, if you go by average star ranking, it was better than
three of the last four classes the Hokies signed. The Hokies are still in the
process of extending their recruiting throughout the east coast, and they are
running into more competition each year. With an expanded recruiting region and
more competition from ACC schools, let’s see how Tech’s class stacks up
against the rest of the conference.

Virginia Tech has certainly garnered more interest from more highly rated
recruits since their entry into the ACC. As a result of their increased
notoriety, as well as an in-state class that didn’t want to stay at home, the
Hokies expanded their recruiting territory even more this year and fought some
major programs in states in the south, as well as the northeast. The Hokies
fought many battles on the recruiting trails against teams like Florida State,
Maryland and Penn State. And while they whiffed on a lot of top prospects, they
still rank as one of the top classes in the ACC.

Here is a look at how the ACC recruiting rankings look, based on average
stars from Rivals.com.
