As usual, most of Virginia Tech’s recruiting class is already in place by the middle of July.  However, there are a few important targets remaining.  We’ll take a look at the offensive targets today.


Current commits: Andrew Ford

Virginia Tech wanted one quarterback this year, and they got Andrew Ford out of Pennsylvania.  Now Ford will play a key role in recruiting other Hokie targets from the northeast.

Running Back

Current commits: Marshawn Williams

Marshawn Williams was a very early commit to Virginia Tech, his childhood favorite.  Williams is a big runner, and though he lacks breakaway speed at this point, he has good vision and good natural running ability.

Right now, Virginia Tech is targeting just one more running back.

Shai McKenzie : McKenzie is a big, physical back from Pennsylvania.  He visited this past Sunday, but the Hokies are unlikely to be able to sway him away from Florida State or Pitt.

I expect Virginia Tech to take one more running back in this class, if they can get Shai McKenzie .  If they can’t get him (and they likely won’t), they will save that scholarship for next year.

Wide Receiver

Current commits: Javon Harrison , Jaylen Bradshaw

Harrison and Bradshaw are expected to play the wide receiver position for Virginia Tech.  Bradshaw has great speed, while Harrison is a very good overall athlete from Florida.  Tech has several wide receivers remaining on their board.

Noah Brown : Brown is the highest-ranked wide receiver remaining on Tech’s board.  He could play tailback or running back in college, but the Hokies like him at wide receiver.  The top competition could be Ohio State and Rutgers.  He is arguably the best offensive player remaining on Tech’s board.

Josh Cabrera : Cabrera is a wide receiver from Jacksonville, NC who was
