VT’s 2015 Class, By The Numbers


Rivals, ESPN and 247Sports have Virginia Tech’s class in the Top 30 nationally. I am not including Scout at this point because they have not updated VT’s commit list to reflect Zachariah Hoyt’s signing. Also of note, Scout is the only one of the three national recruiting outlets that does not include Xavier Burke and Tyrell Smith.

Rivals ranks Virginia Tech’s class at no. 24 in the nation and no. 3 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. ESPN has the class ranked no. 25 in the nation and no. 5 in the ACC, while 247Sports has the class ranked no. 29 in the nation and no. 5 in the ACC.

In terms of 2015 player rankings, Rivals has eight players with a 4-star ranking (Jahque Alleyne, Austin Clark, Tremaine Edmunds, Darius Fullwood, Dwayne Lawson, Deshawn McClease, Yosuah Nijman and Tim Settle).

ESPN ranks Settle as a 5-star and no. 19 overall prospect in the nation, has Virginia Tech with six 4-star recruits (Xavier Burke, Clark, Trevon Hill, Lawson, Nijman and Mook Reynolds), 16 3-star recruits and one unrated prospect.

247Sports has six of Tech’s recruits with a 4-star ranking (Clark, Hill, Lawson, Nijman, Reynolds and Settle) and the rest with a 3-star ranking.
