Huge Recruiting Weekend Cancelled

Virginia Tech's football staff has cancelled this weekends activities due to the winter storm.

Virginia Tech was scheduled to host 20+ athletes on campus this weekend for a football recruiting event, but due to the winter weather all of those visits will have to be rescheduled. Several of the Hokie's top-targets have already rescheduled including Jaquan Bailey, a top defensive-end target.

The winter weather is often unpredictable this time of year in the mountains of Virginia and most of these young men understand that. I do not see this turning any of these targets away from Virginia Tech, but it all depends on how quickly and efficiently Justin Fuente and Co. move to get these young men rescheduled. I expect Virginia Tech to host several mid-week visitors and several per weekend until signing day. Also, look for the staff to be back on the road as soon as the weather clears in the Burg.

Virginia Tech will look to finish the 2016 recruiting class strong by visiting all of the targets left on their board as well as getting many of them on campus as soon as possible. The Hokies have a lot to sell when it comes to a new offensive system, playing time on defense and great facilities. Keep an eye and ear tuned to GobblerCountry as we will have you covered as soon as the news breaks.

Go Hokies!
