Defensive Targets: Fuller, Teller and Rolin Stand Out

Thanks to recent attrition, we could see Tech’s numbers going up on the defensive side of the ball for the 2013 recruiting class.  The Hokies desperately need cornerbacks, and we could see them add an extra linebacker as well.

James Farrow made what I believe will turn out to be a mistake for him and decided to transfer.  He would be Virginia Tech’s #3 cornerback had he not left the program.  Also, the loss of Telvion Clark leaves Tech with an extra spot to sign another linebacker if they so choose.

Defensive Line

Virginia Tech has a number of young defensive linemen in the program already, and they signed a lot of defensive linemen in February of 2012: Ken Ekanem (DE), Jarontay Jones (DE), Nigel Williams (DT/DE), Woody Baron (DT), Alston Smith (DT) and Seth Dooley (DE).  They don’t have the need to sign a lot of defensive linemen this year, though they certainly will target some guys that they believe can be impact players.

Based on film I’ve watched, Wyatt Teller could be the best football player Virginia Tech is recruiting this year.  As much as I love Kendall Fuller , you could argue that Teller’s versatility makes him Tech’s best target, and it also slightly bumps him ahead of E.J. Levenberry as the top recruit in the state of Virginia (in my opinion).  If you’ve yet to watch his film, click on his name, go to the “Video” tab, watch and be amazed.

Teller is the best defensive lineman in the state of Virginia, and he’s the best offensive lineman in the state of Virginia.  As offensive linemen goes, he’s one of the best you’ll see coming out of this state.  I legitimately believe that he will be an outstanding college football player at defensive end, defensive tackle, offensive tackle or offensive guard.  He’s that versatile.  Oh, and he has also played some inside linebacker and slot back.  That’s right, slot back.

Most people have Jonathan Allen as the best defensive lineman in the state, and I really don’t know why.  If you look at their film and their size, there really is no comparison.  Teller is better, though
