Recruiting news hasn’t been positive for Virginia Tech over the course of the past week, but the Hokies still have a chance to finish strong in the 2012 class. With just over three weeks remaining until Signing Day, Tech remains very much in the running with three of its top overall targets: Clover Hill (Midlothian, VA) WR/ATH Joel Caleb, Centreville (Clifton, VA) DE Ken Ekanem and Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) DT Korren Kirven.

You and your parents may visit a college campus during this time. A coach may write or telephone you or your parents during this time.
