Virginia Tech had three freshmen turn in very good seasons as receivers in 2014. How do their numbers as freshmen compare with some of Tech’s best receivers in school history?

In case you forgot the reception numbers for Isaiah Ford, Bucky Hodges and Cam Phillips, here they are…

Ford: 56 catches
Hodges: 47 catches
Phillips: 40 catches

If they each match that production in all of the next three seasons, here’s what their numbers would look like at the end of their career when compared to Tech’s all-time leading receivers…

Isaiah Ford: 224 catches
Bucky Hodges: 188
Jarrett Boykin: 184
Danny Coale: 165
Cam Phillips: 160
Ernest Wilford: 126
Josh Morgan: 122
Antonio Freeman: 121
Eddie Royal: 119

Ford and Bucky are on pace to finish as Tech’s top two receivers in school history. In fact, Ford is on pace to be #1 by a very wide margin. Phillips is on pace to finish in a very respectable fifth place.
