The “Strategy Session” is back with a big picture look at Virginia Tech football recruiting. The focus of this feature is on the class of 2015, in which the Hokies have secured verbal commitment from 17 prospects. The position breakdown is as follows…

RB – 1 (Deshawn McClease)
WR/RB – 1 (Coleman Fox)
WR/TE – 1 (Chris Cunningham)
OL – 3 (Mike Arnold, Austin Clark, DAndre Plantin)
DT – 2 (Harry Lewis, Eric Whitehead)
DE – 2 (Darius Fullwood, Trevon Hill)
LB/DE – 1 (Damien Dozier)
LB – 2 (Tremaine Edmunds, Carson Lydon)
CB – 2 (DuWayne Johnson, Mook Reynolds)
S – 2 (Adonis Alexander, Jahque Alleyne)

In addition to those high school senior commits listed above, Virginia Tech will have two class of 2014 holdovers in the fold in January of 2015. They are offensive lineman Tyrell Smith and tight end/defensive lineman Xavier Burke. Smith has gained admission to Virginia Tech and will enroll in January of 2015. Burke tweeted on November 23 that he has gained the test score he needed, so he will be at Tech in January as well.

At least two high school senior commits – Austin Clark and Carson Lydon – plan on enrolling at Tech in January of 2015 as well. As of last check, both players were on track to be in Blacksburg in two months. OLB/DE Damien Dozier hoped to enroll in January as well, but I’ll check on his status.
