Nike is hosting its "The Opening" event in Oregon this weekend, and keep your eye on Devon Hunter. The safety from Indian River High School would be a huge get for the Hokies. The class of 2017 has some great athletes, but who wouldn't love a 4* addition to the D.B.U.?  Hunter has impressed in Oregon, and other teams are already making their pitch.  Virginia Tech is "leading" according to 247sports.com , but the Clemson Tigers have proven they can swipe at will.

The Hokies' recruiting ace, Zohn Burden, has done a great job thus far with Hunter. The next few weeks will be pivotal, and the Hokie Nation might just be welcoming a new member to the LPD. Hunter has a total of 34 offers, so the Hokies have stiff competition.
