Even with Virginia Tech undergoing a coaching change, Sam Denmark never wavered from his commitment to the Hokies. This week, the soon-to-be Hanahan High School (S.C.) graduate heard from his future head coach, Justin Fuente. The conversation made him even more excited about his future in the orange and maroon.
“I have spoken to Coach Fuente. I was very impressed how quickly he personally reached out to the recruits,” Denmark wrote in a Twitter direct message. “He said to me that he runs the spread offense and that I should fit in very well because he liked what he saw.”
New Virginia Tech assistant, Holmon Wiggins, spoke with Denmark as well. Wiggins served as wide receivers coach at Memphis and presumably will fill the same role at Tech.
“[Wiggins] said that he was glad that I was an early enrollee. He expects a lot out of me and has high expectations,” Denmark wrote.
Having had a chance to get to know Fuente, what is Denmark most excited about with respect to playing for the former Memphis head coach?
“That he runs the spread offense and passes the ball down the field to put points on the board,” the Palmetto State standout replied. “If we can create mismatches and score we can win ball games and put VT back on top.”
“I’m excited,” Denmark continued. “I can’t wait to get in and start working.”
Denmark, a 6’1″, 180-pound prospect, possesses excellent speed to break big plays. He had a terrific senior season, which you can see highlights from below.
