From now until February, the Virginia Tech coaching staff will primarily
focus their recruiting on the offensive side of the ball. There are several
major players left to recruit for defense, but there is a much greater need on
offense, particularly on the offensive line.

Right now, Tech has seven offensive commitments for 2012.

Targets, Offense
Position Expected
Numbers
Current
Commits
QB 1-2 1
RB 2 1
WR 4-5 3
TE 1 1
OL 3 1
Total 11-13 7

Note that Thomas
Smith
is a 2012 wide receiver who committed to Tech over the weekend, but
will spend an entire year at Fork Union before coming to Tech in 2013. For all
intents and purposes, he is a 2013 recruit.

Also, athletes such as Der’Woun
Greene
and Desmond
Frye
could end up at wide receiver. For now however, we’re listing them as
defensive recruits.

Quarterback

The Hokies are still recruiting Chris
Moody
and Bennie
Coney
at quarterback, and perhaps there are some other names out there that
we haven’t
