Virginia Tech Hokies Land Four Top Recruits
The Virginia Tech Hokies 2013 National Signing Day is shaping up to be one their best in the last decade. The day isn’t over yet, and head coach Frank Beamer already has the signatures of four of his top recruiting targets. The school offered scholarships to dozens of top 300 players for the upcoming 2013-14 season and was able to land on four of them.
As expected, their highest ranked recruit Kendall Fuller (CB Good Counsel High School) snubbed his hometown Maryland Terrapins for the Hokies. Fuller is the fifth ranked cornerback in the nation. He should produce from day one in Virginia Tech’s 2nd ranked ACC scoring defense.
The Hokies also inked another high profile player in Holland Fisher (S Manchester High School). Fisher is a fast player that could fit in well as a hybrid linebacker or remain in the secondary as a hard-hitting safety. He is ranked eighth among safeties in the nation.
Virginia Tech nabbed the services of Cequan Jefferson (ATH Henrico High School) as well. Jefferson is a homestate speed demon. He is a top player at his position and is sure to find a spot with the team. Jefferson is one of those players that could find a home as a returner, cornerback or possibly even at running back if he puts on some weight.
Finally, the school signed Braxton Pfaff (OG Liberty Christian Academy). Pfaff will help protect quarterback Logan Thomas and possesses the size and strength to do that job well. He rounds out an excellent crop of freshman for the upcoming college football season.
