Virginia Tech always liked Dean Ferguson as a football player, but there was never any clear indication of which position he is best suited at the college level. He plays like a safety, but he has the body of a linebacker, and will get even bigger once he hits Ben Hilgart’s strength and conditioning program. However, Bud Foster was his lead recruiter, and Foster eventually saw enough to make a serious push for his commitment, which he got back on August 17.
