Target Board Update: Defense

Today we’ll look at the remaining defensive targets on Virginia Tech’s board. Though the Hokies lost a verbal commitment last night, they are increasing the number of their linebacker targets.

Courtland High School linebacker Victor Greene “decommitted” from the Hokies on Tuesday night. He had an interesting quote

“[Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud] Foster talked to [Courtland head coach JC] Hall on Monday,” Greene said. “My understanding is that Coach Foster said there was a chance some defensive offers would be pulled for more offensive scholarships.”

In other words, Foster was saying “Greene might want to start looking at some other schools, because his offer might not be there in a month.” The quote could also be a sign that a few defensive scholarships could be slotted for the offense from this point forward. That isn’t too surprising, considering Fuente has an offensive background.
