Nick was the only ESPN 150 recruit we picked up in his recruiting class, one major analyst named him one of 6 players that would have the biggest impact in college going into the scheme he was. Since arriving at Tech he has been stuck as a 3'rd string defensive player. If you go back and look at his High School videos the kid was a monster on the field. This means one of two things either his football IQ and technique are just not very good for the college level, or he has a major lack of determination which would be a shame. Look at how good VT is when developing 2 and 3 star high school players, just imagine how good we could be if we had the chance to develop more kids with 4 and 5 star potential. Next offseason is going to go along ways to determining how relevant we are going into the 2014 season. I don't see a national championship run happening in 2013, but if the coaches can keep all of their juniors around for their senior season (I know thats a major stretch of the imagination) we will be completelly loaded come 2014 and with a kickoff game against BAMA that would be an awesome thing to happen. So I don't care what they have to do but I think the coaches need to pull all the ropes in keeping Logan Thomas, Kyle Fuller, James Gayle, JR Collins, and Antone Exum out of next years draft. That being said the state of VA is ABSOLUTELY loaded with talent in the 2014 recruiting class including the potential #1 and #2 players in the nation, the entire top 10 may be included in Rivals top 100 come signing day if we can maintain the juniors we have go in and beat BAMA in the opener and make a run at the NC in 2014 bring in 6,7, or 8 of those top players from the state then the sky is the limit for what we can accomplish in the years to come.
One Last Note to Kendall Fuller: Blacksburg is ready for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
