The annual Spring Game, one of Virginia Tech’s best recruiting tools, takes place tomorrow and a number of top 2011 targets are expected to be in Blacksburg. will follow up with prospects for reports over the weekend, but for now let’s review some of the prospects Tech has offered that are expected to be in attendance.

Topping the list is a pair of linebacker prospects, Hermitage (Richmond, VA) star Stephone Anthony. Grant will be making his second visit to Virginia Tech in a month. This race will be a battle until the end with in-state rival Virginia making a push with new coach Mike London as well as top out of state offers such as Alabama and Florida, but Virginia Tech will have the stage tomorrow.

Anthony, who plays at the same high school current Tech linebacker Barquell Rivers attended, has Florida as his favorite right now but does have Virginia Tech in his top six. He last visited Tech for the N.C. State game last fall.

Harrisonburg (VA) offensive tackle Landon Turner has had great previous experiences at Tech, including visits for the Nebraska game last fall and the February 27 Prospect Day. UNC continues to be tied at the top with Tech, but if Turner continues to rave about his experiences in Blacksburg the way he has, the Hokies could be tough to beat in the end.

Osbourn Park (Manassas, VA) slot receiver/cornerback Dominique Terrell plans to attend tomorrow as well. Exactly where Tech stands with Terrell is unclear, but we’ll see if things become clearer after tomorrow’s visit. The big-time athlete also visited Virginia for its Spring Game.
