National Signing Day was much quieter for the Virginia Tech Hokies in 2013 in comparison with one year ago. Last year, the Hokies went down to the line with four recruits, securing commitments from three.
In 2013, the Hokies signed 19 players. Five enrolled in January. Four-star running back Drew Harris did not sign his letter of intent today, as he is still dealing with NCAA Clearinghouse issues.
Clearly, the focuses of this class were quarterback, defensive back and offensive line. The Hokies did well, securing multiple commitments for all three positions.
It will be interesting to see how the Hokies proceed in recruiting in the next few years with the three new offensive coaches; offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler, offensive line coach Jeff Grimes and wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead.
Each comes from a different part of the country and could open more areas for the Hokies to recruit high school talent.
Here is a look at how Virginia Tech’s class of 2013 fared.
