After hinting around about satellite camps recently, coach Justin Fuente has tipped his hand. According to Roanoke Times beat reporter Andy Bitter, the Hokies are planning satellite camps this summer.
The 757 is a no-brainer, as well as NOVA. NOVA stands for northern Virginia, and the D.C. area. The Hokies will be competing with Maryland and other schools for the talent in this area. The surprises include New Jersey and Atlanta. Atlanta has been a long time favorite for S.E.C. coaches, and produces top tier talent year in and year out. New Jersey is also fertile recruiting territory, and the Hokies are wise in expanding their footprint. It will be interesting to see if the camps result in signed L.O.I.'s, but the exposure will most certainly help.
Short session with Fuente today. #Hokies will have satellite camps in the 757 and NOVA, plus Atlanta and New Jersey this summer. #Hokies— Andy Bitter (@AndyBitterVT) May 24, 2016
