Of the talent expected to be on hand for tomorrow’s Spring Game, TechSideline.com Managing Editor Chris Coleman said, “I don’t think there has been as much talent in Blacksburg on one weekend since the 2005 Miami game.”

The Spring Game is always one of Virginia Tech’s best recruiting showcases. Certainly, this year is shaping up to be one of the more important ones in recent memory. TSL takes a look at those prospects confirmed to be coming to Blacksburg tomorrow, as well as their current recruiting situations.

Most, if not all, of the 2011 class will be there. 2012 commits Donaldven Manning (CB, Central (Miami, FL)) and TJ Millweard (QB, All Saints Episcopal, Fort Worth (TX)) plan to attend. Below is a listing of those 2012 targets that are expected to attend. All of the below prospects have been offered by Virginia Tech.

Woody Baron

Virginia Tech appears to be in good position with the 6-3, 260-pound Baron, the nephew of former Hokies standout Jim Baron. When the Brentwood Academy (Nashville, TN) defensive lineman wants to commit is unknown, but it wouldn’t be a total surprise if something happened this spring or summer.

Joel Caleb

Virginia Tech is very much in the running with the 6-3, 210-pound athlete, one of the top 2012 class recruits in the state of Virginia. Caleb has visited Tech several times previously, most recently for the junior day in February. A decision isn’t expected to come any time soon, though, and may not come until the fall or winter.

Deon Clarke

L.C. Bird’s (Chesterfield, VA) second-team all-state linebacker grew up a Virginia Tech fan, but Virginia is also strongly in this race. Skyhawks head coach said just last week that the 6-3, 215-pound junior would like to take official visits, so, like Caleb, a decision isn’t expected to come soon. But also like Caleb, Virginia Tech figures to be a top contender.

J.C. Coleman

“I do like those four,” Coleman said in an April 1 update. Duke, Maryland, Virginia and Virginia Tech were the
