Virginia Tech football recruiting revisited: How did Hokies’ 2018 class pan out?


The bloom was not yet off the rose for Justin Fuente at Virginia Tech in 2018. In fact, the Hokies’ signing class, headlined by blue-chip North Carolina prospects Dax Hollifield and Tre Turner, ranked 24th in the 247Sports Composite, still the highest for the program since 2013. And the class panned out, for the most part, with double-digit players making 20 or more starts, eight earning at least an All-ACC honorable mention and one, the sign-and-follow Fork Union prospect Christian Darrisaw, coming out of nowhere to turn himself into a first-round draft pick.
