Taking a quick peak into Virginia Tech's 2016 recruiting class

Virginia Tech is focused on its 2016 class.

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

The Virginia Tech Hokies celebrated yet another great recruiting class Wednesday. A class that finished ranked #25 in the nation according to ESPN's 2015 Football Class Rankings. The class featured players like five star prospect (DT) Tim Settle and four star prospect (QB) Dwayne Lawson. Both are players that will have a great opportunity to make an immediate impact for the Hokies.

Although the Hokies had a great recruiting class, the celebration was short lived as the Hokies have already switched their focus on topping this year's effort in 2016.

The Hokies are already off towards a decent start. With four players already committed to wearing a Virginia Tech uniform in 2016, the Hokies have a solid foundation of talent to build upon. Let's take a look at early 2016 class.

Connor O'Donnell - WR 6-0, 160

O'Donnell is a WR out of Huntersville, North Carolina. He originally committed Mississippi State before switching his commitment to the Hokies. He is a crisp route runner with good hands. He has the ability to catch the ball in traffic. If he is able to develop a little more physically, he will fit into the slot position nicely.

Logan Byrd - QB 6-3, 220

Logan Byrd committed to Virginia Tech way back in September. That was before 2015 QB Dwayne Lawson flipped his commitment from Miami to Virginia Tech. Byrd and Lawson are two completely different quarterbacks. Logan Byrd has experience working under-center. Although he can at times have a slower more deliberate release, he has great timing and can get rid of the ball quickly. If Byrd can continue to develop and fine tune his craft, he will be a great pickup for the Hokies.

Myles Wolfolk - DB 6-1, 180

Myles Wolfolk will bring more size to the Hokies secondary. He also brings both great instinctive skills and ball skills. Wolfolk can also become a great player is he can develop his raw skills. He has the potential to play just about anywhere in the secondary.

Kareem Felder - DB 5-11, 165

Virginia Tech's most recent recruit Kareem Felder is true playmaker. He has great cover skills, and will attack the ball at it's highest point. Despite is size he is a very physical corner. Felder has the potential to become a great player for the Hokies. With both Kareem Felder and Myles Wolfolk the Hokies are building a potential great secondary.
