    ...and NSD drama ends.

    OL is so key I say bring in as many as possible, and let them sort it out.

    A calm signing day for the Hokies. Isn't there still some uncertainty with Trevon Hill though? Or is that something we won't find out about till a later date?

    I agree.

    And if you're a VT fan, no drama on signing day is a GOOD thing. Beamer and company don't exactly have a "swing them on the last day" technique. They have more of a "win them over a long period of time" technique.

    Scot Loeffler deserves lots of credit for pulling in Dwayne Lawson. I see this as a big plus for Loeffler -- QB development is his wheelhouse.

    Here are some comments from Lawson's coach: "We've had 11 kids play in the league, and he's the best true quarterback I've ever coached," Garcia said. "I went to bat for him and believed in him with Coach Loeffler, and he knows he's not getting sold a bill of goods here."

    Garcia stresses that Lawson is a "hell of an athlete," and he got plenty of chances to prove it in Hillsborough's system. The Terriers run an up-tempo spread offense, giving Lawson a taste of several different offensive philosophies.

    Good to see that Houshun Gaines signed. He caught some grief on the boards during his recruitment, but he's on board now. I hope he can get focused now.

    Viewership on the hokie hoopla has been down. I believe we hit over 250k views on last year's class thread by NSD. over 100k views less this year.

    Great recruiting class, but no drama = no need to constantly watch the monitor, or to complain about the guy who flipped and catfished a coach on the radio.

    It isn't about just today, it is about the last 365 days and there has been plenty of drama with this class with Sweat, Dalton, Lawson flipping, Clark flipping, Mook to every school but us at one point, and the surprise of Settle. Just saying that this board has been much quieter than in the past.

    Former commit Marcus Lewis signed with FSU today. I'm sure you guys were on the edge of your seats to learn his destination. Take a look at this timeline according to 247, lol.

    11/16/13 - commits to VT
    12/4/13 - decommits from VT (that was fast)
    3/4/14 - names tOSU leaders
    4/17/14 - commits to UF
    7/28/14 - decommits from UF
    2/4/15 - signs with FSU. had crystal ball predictions for UK, Michigan, FSU, Miami, and UF (in that order)

    You didn't mention some of them also pay money so they can act like they contribute billions of dollars to the program. :dhd:

    The hoop has been down for awhile, but we have a good group, share good information, and don't take things so seriously.

    There were some misses in this class, but obviously we won't know a lot about what we have for a coupla years. These types of classes are the ones that put VT on the map. A lot to like about this class I think.

    That's about as bad as Michael Barnett's recruitment. Dude dumped us when 'Bama offered, then during his "early enrollment" paperwork signing ceremony for FSU, he flipped to UGa! I think Clemson and USC-e were named leaders at some point in his recruitment as well. :dhd:

    Good, no surprises. Now we sit back, wait, and pray that this class doesn't flame out like a couple in recent years have.

    What an ass this kid is. Did he even visit FSU? HE was all over the map. I got so sick of hearing about his leaders and commitments and such. Recruiting itself is so over the top and ridiculous. You have kids who commit to school, and then call ceremonies, put a few hats on the table that they aren't even interested in, and grab their committed hat. Having said that, I pay way too much attention to it, but I love VT Football.
