Blacksburg native Cole Beck received a Virginia Tech offer in early August, and he committed to the Hokies on Oct. 6.  The recruitment of Beck was a long, drawn out process that saw many twists and turns.  At one point the Hokies only planned to take one running back in the 2018 class, which prevented Beck from getting an offer.  There were also questions about his hands, blocking, etc. — questions that still persist.
