This past weekend was a big one in Blacksburg as the Virginia Tech Hokies hosted a number of recruits on their official visits. From all indications, it went well according to VT Scoop (subscription required). But of course, things always go well with on-campus visits, right?
As it currently stands, the Hokies have 21 verbal commitments. Four players have already signed and enrolled in classes, therefore making them eligible for spring practice.
Head coach Frank Beamer would like to add several more to this class. However, keeping each of the current verbals will be a challenge, too. Current commit, wide receiver Javon Harrison, is wavering on his commitment, and 247Sports' Crystal Ball currently has Harrison switching to Florida State.
National signing day hasn't brought many surprises for the Hokies in recent years, but things will be different this year. Outside of Harrison, we'll assume most of Virginia Tech's verbal commitments stay true to their pledges. So here are four players we expect to sign with the Hokies on February 5.
