The Hokies didn’t come out of spring practice thinking they needed immediate help at defensive tackle and star linebacker, but when opportunities arose to add players at those positions — and more importantly, players with three years of eligibility left — they pounced.

The result was the post-spring addition of defensive tackle Khurtiss Perry out of Alabama and star linebacker Kaleb Spencer from Miami, filling out Virginia Tech’s scholarship allotment by bringing it up to 85.

Perry, who committed on May 14, wasn’t well-known by the staff, which put him through the usual vetting process, though when his high school film got to Brent Pry, the coach came away impressed.

“He was a guy that needed a reboot,” Pry said last week.
