For years, Virginia Tech operated with in-state quarterbacks who were for the most part highly-recruited.  However, recent outside forces have changed Tech’s recruiting strategy.

In-state high school quarterbacks have changed through the years.  For a long time, there were a ton of good dual threat quarterbacks coming out of the state of Virginia, starting with Maurice DeShazo in 1990.  Al Clark was from DC, but he played at Fork Union in Virginia.  Michael Vick, Bryan Randall, Marcus Vick and Tyrod Taylor were all 4-star or 5-star players from the 757.  Sean Glennon wasn’t a dual threat guy, but he was a Virginian.  Jim Druckenmiller, also not a dual threat quarterback, was not a Virginian, but like Al Clark he did go to Fork Union.
