Defensive Targets: Hokies go all in for linemen

Vinny Mihota at VT’s camp in June of 2013

Defensive End

Commits: Vinny Mihota

Virginia Tech wanted two defensive ends in this class.  They got a very good one in Vinny Mihota .  Alabama offered Mihota, as did Stanford and a few others.  He’s a very good football player who should be an excellent defensive lineman for the Hokies.

Unfortunately, Da’Shawn Hand eliminated Tech, and Jesse Aniebonam is likely headed to Maryland.  Virginia Tech could offer Jay Payton , and I think there’s a chance he could grow into a defensive end.  However, for now he’s a linebacker.
