First of all, let me point out that Virginia Tech technically doesn’t have a lot of room left in this class. I counted 83 scholarship players for next year, including the players who have already committed for 2017, Silas Dzansi from the 2016 class, and I also assumed that Steven Peoples and CJ Carroll have been placed on scholarship.
On paper, there isn’t a whole lot of room remaining in this class — just two scholarships under the NCAA limit of 85 scholarships. However, there will most certainly be attrition. For example, I included Shai McKenzie among the returning players, but in reality I think there’s very little chance that he’ll be back next season. Tech will make the numbers work, and they aren’t in a position to turn away talented players who could potentially be upgrades over some current players on the roster.
Let’s take a closer look at each position and where the Hokies stand two months before Signing Day.
