2012 Class: A Perfect Fit

Frank Beamer has signed a class that is perfect for the Virginia Tech culture. Some of these guys will have an opportunity to play early as well.

Best Class Ever?

Define “best”. You really can’t judge a recruiting class until everyone is finished with their careers, but if you really want to get into best classes, there are several ways to discuss it. Yesterday we noted that Tech signed more 4-star recruits this year than in any previous year. If you are using that as your basis, then the 2012 class is the best in school history.

You could also use average star ranking. Averaging the stars for each class since the ACC era began, we’ll see that the 2012 class is second on the list, just behind 2010 and just ahead of 2004.
