The Virginia Tech Hokies 2013 recruiting class will revolve around 5-star cornerback Kendall Fuller from Maryland, and rightfully so, but this incoming class is one of the more talented in recent Virginia Tech history.
The Hokies concentrated in the offensive line, defensive back and quarterback in particular and came away with several impressive prospects.
Coming off a disappointing 7-6 season, the Hokies will have nine starters on defense returning in 2013. Juniors Antone Exum and James Gayle are both weighing whether to bypass their senior year and enter the NFL draft. If they do leave, that would create two more starting positions on the defense.
The offense could be in a state of flux once again with as many as eight starters needing to be replaced. Quarterback Logan Thomas may or may not return in 2013 as he too is strongly weighing the NFL.
