Seven of North Carolina’s top 2018 football prospects will be in Blacksburg for their official visits this weekend. Tech’s focus on the Tar Heel state has never been more evident or important as it is right now.

Virginia Tech recruits the state of North Carolina a lot these days, and they go head-to-head with the Tar Heels as much as anybody. Justin Fuente was asked Monday on Tech Talk Live about the impact of Saturday’s game on recruiting. Here’s what he said.

“To me, if I was advising an 18-year-old on deciding where to go to school, I don’t know that I would stake a large portion of that on one football game,” Fuente said. “I think there are a lot of other factors that are much more important to their happiness and their day-to-day life that don’t have to do with what happens on one particular Saturday for four hours. I’m sure, in their minds, there’s an element of that, but ultimately, making a decision on where you’re going to go to school and who you’re going to play for, the program you’re going to represent, to me, one game shouldn’t define that one way or the other.”
