Virginia Tech went into the state of North Carolina and beat out the Tar Heels, Louisville, Wisconsin and others for Dudley High School cornerback DJ Crossen.  The presence of Hendon Hooker and other Greensboro-area players certainly helped with Crossen’s recruitment, as the Hokies have recently put a major emphasis on recruiting the Tar Heel State.
