The numbers that turned the most heads, however, were those recorded by the tape measure and scale.
By Jimmy Robertson BLACKSBURG – A year ago on this date, Justin Fuente had been on the job for less than two months, and he and his staff were trying to keep the 2016 recruiting class intact, while adding selective pieces to it. The formulation of the 2017 recruiting class took a little more traditional approach this time around, as the staff brought in a 26-member haul that included nine who enrolled for the spring semester and 17 who signed letter-of-intents Wednesday – a day known in college football as “National Signing Day.” Fuente and his staff constructed a well-balanced class, both in terms of positions and from a geographical standpoint. The staff signed two quarterbacks, a running back, three wide receivers, three tight ends and three offensive linemen.
They managed to put together a fairly good class, several of whom played this past season. Eight states are represented, along with Washington, D. On the defense side, the staff secured four defensive linemen, four linebackers and three defensive backs to go along with two athletes and a punter.
“I’m much more comfortable because I’ve been around these guys a lot more – and their families,” he said.
“That’s not to say the kids that signed last year we look at any differently. It’s just, as a class, I’ve personally been able to spend a lot more time with these kids and continue to teach them about Virginia Tech and what we can do for them.” More than a quarter of the class hails from the state of Virginia, with defensive back Devon Hunter headlining the class.
