Every season, college football fans look forward to National Signing Day. Fans are excited to see how many 4 and 5-star recruits their favorite school signs.
However, not all of those big-time recruits make it. The hype often does not match the production for a variety of reasons. Some players switch positions, others can't adjust to the speed of the game while some leave the program.
The Virginia Tech Hokies built their program on lesser-known recruits and a blue-collar approach. Some of the better players in Virginia Tech history weren't 5-star recruits. Michael Vick, for example, wasn't even the top-rated quarterback from the state of Virginia in 1998.
While Vick is considered by most to be the best quarterback in Virginia Tech history, his younger brother, Marcus, entered Blacksburg with more hype. We all know how that turned out.
Who is the Hokies' most-hyped recruit of all-time at the quarterback position?
Here is a look at the top-rated recruits at each position in the history of Virginia Tech. Keep in mind, Rivals wasn't founded until 2001 and 247Sports in 2010, so many of the earlier rankings were from local and national newspapers, ESPN, etc.
