Virginia Tech is set to host the first big recruiting day for the class of 2013, and top prospects are scheduled to attend.  The Hokies got on the board quickly in last year’s class, scoring commitments from Donaldven Manning and Davion Tookes around Signing Day.  There are no commitments yet for 2013, but certainly the staff would like to get started this weekend.

Here are some notable prospects — most with a Virginia Tech offer, some without — we have confirmed for Tech’s February 18 junior day.

Dillon Christopher, PK, Menchville (Newport News, VA) (no offer)

Christopher, likely the top place-kicking prospect in the state in 2013, is getting a hard look from the Hokies.  Whether that results in a scholarship remains to be seen, but certainly Frank Beamer, who stopped by Menchville in January, seems highly interested.

Cameron Dillard, OL, Canton (MI) (no offer)

Dillard has become a nationally recruited interior offensive line prospect, boasting offers from Arizona, Arkansas, Cincinnati, Indiana, Missouri, Oregon and West Virginia, among others.  The 6’3″, 280-pound rising senior does not claim an offer from Tech but plans to be in Blacksburg on Saturday.  Tech is the last stop in what has been a busy junior day circuit for Dillard, who has already trekked to Clemson, Michigan State, Ohio State and West Virginia.  According to this article, there is no favorite and Dillard has no timetable for when he would like to commit.

Holland Fisher, LB, Clover Hill (Midlothian, VA)

Virginia Tech is one of a handful of offers the 6’2″, 190-pound linebacker prospect has received so far.  Fisher, who attends the same school as Hokies 2012 signee Joel Caleb and former Tech standout Blake DeChristopher, does not seem close to making a decision, though he has visited Virginia Tech before and seems interested.  He has also visited Maryland, Tennessee and Virginia.

Kendall Fuller , CB/WR, Good Counsel (Olney, MD)

Vincent Fuller confirmed that Kendall will attend Tech’s junior day.  Per Good Counsel football’s Twitter feed, Kendall’s current top eight looks like this:  Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Maryland, Michigan, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.  Tech obviously has a great track record with the Fuller family and should be one of top
