Yeah. We will be OK in the DB department...
Sure is quiet on the recruiting front the last couple of months. Seems odd. And whatever happened to vtfan? He was practically a reporter with as much news he posted.
Bitter tweeting Josh Jackson (QB-Dual Threat) committed to the Hokies. 4 star recruit according to ESPN.
first Hokie news I've broken on the board, that's how you know it's slow around here!
There is a video of his highlights at the bottom of Bitter's article. He looks pretty quick, and seems to have a strong arm. Delivery looks a little long, but I'm not a scout by any means
Michigan QB Josh Jackson commits to the Hokies - Roanoke Times: Andy Bitter Virginia Tech Football
Solid get. We need a young QB to battle it out with Lawson
Good pick up!. Apparently Lefty coached with his old man at Michigan.
Personally, I like that we are getting back to more of a dual threat QB. With the spread offenses, thats the way the game is going. Plus, it was VTs bread and butter for a long time.
"ESPN national recruiting analyst Gerry Hamilton listed Jackson among quarterbacks in the 2016 cycle that could go from under-recruited to eventual first team all-conference players, or even become a Heisman winner, like Marcus Mariota."
We'll see how it goes. I live an hour away so I could totally scout him for you guys
Eric Kumah is announcing tomorrow at 5pm. I personally think its between UMD and VT.
Kumah is in the fold!
Good pickup. A little bit bigger than most of the receivers we have..so thats a good thing!
Hokies pick up 3 star LB Emmanuel Belmar
Emmanuel Belmar, Collins Hill, Outside Linebacker
So I was on our 247 team site and saw our class is ranked 42? I don't care if we have a tendency to coach up - we need to get it done on the recruiting trail if we expect to be competing in the ACC again....
Yup. Something needs to be done, not sure exactly what. I cant blame the kids because Beamer most likely wont be around for their entire college careers, they don't know what head coach they'll be playing for in a few years. It's just so easy to negative recruit against VT now.
It's definitely been a lot quieter on the recruiting front so far this year
I thought we hired full time recruiting staff in the Athletic Dept to help us out here?? I am interested to see where we end up at the end of the 2016 recruiting cycle. So far I am unimpressed.
Picked up two recruits today:
3 star OL Patrick Kearns ( Patrick Kearns, Darlington School, Offensive Tackle )
3 star LB Tavante Beckett ( Tavante Beckett, Indian River, Outside Linebacker )
Looks like we picked up a 3 star receiver Divine Diablo per the free side of 247. He has a nice offer sheet. Zohn getting it done!
That's a real name? Wtf...
Diablo is a Winston-Salem product from Mt. Tabor HS. I'm glad he's going to VT and not Carolina or State.
