Virginia Tech is targeting a number of highly-touted prospects on defense,
particularly on the defensive line. Today’s recruiting targets update will focus
on Bud Foster’s side of the football.

The Hokies are nearly finished in the secondary, which isn’t a surprise. Tech
never has trouble recruiting skill position players, particularly defensive
backs. Here’s a look at how the defensive class is shaking out so far.

Targets, Defense
Pos. Expected
DE 2-3 0
DT 2-3 0
LB 3 1
CB 2-3 2
S 2-3 3

Again, those numbers are simply an educated guess. Der’Woun Greene and
are slotted at safety right now, because that’s where I feel they will end
up long-term. However, they could both be wide receivers as well.

With defensive backs nearly taken care of, the Tech coaching staff can focus
on the defensive line and linebacker.

Remember, this isn’t a complete list of the players Virginia Tech has
offered. Instead, it only discusses the recruits the Hokies have offered that
have a decent chance of ending up at Virginia Tech.
