Friday Q&A: Recruiting, the RB situation, and Cincinnati

1) How do we finish the recruiting class?

Chris Coleman: Virginia Tech has four major targets remaining, plus probably a few currently unknown offensive linemen that they are pursuing.

Dwayne Lawson: Lawson is a former Miami quarterback commit from Tampa, FL who recently decommitted from Miami.  He will announce his decision at the Semper Fi All-Star game on January 4.  He is down to Tech and Miami at this point, though it’s possible other schools could try to get involved.  My opinion is that Lawson has already basically assured the VT staff that he is coming to Tech, but he is delaying his official commitment because these All-Star games like to have a lot of prospects make their decision during the game for ratings and hype.

Lawson is a big, strong-armed quarterback.  He’s a very good prospect.  If he commits to Tech, he would be the second quarterback Scot Loeffler managed to flip from another major program in the last 12 months.  Chris Durkin, who redshirted this year, was originally a Michigan State commit.
