ACC Coach of the Year winner Justin Fuente’s first cycle as Hokies head coach was nothing short of a success. Despite getting hit hard by a few decommitments and recruiting trail losses on national signing day, Virginia Tech finished with their first top-25 recruiting class since 2013.
The Hokies 2017 class is lead by safety Devon Hunter, one of the top-50 players nationally and the third best safety of the cycle. Notable names behind Hunter include linebackers Nathan Proctor and Dylan Rivers both who were at one point expected to be headed for Penn State.
The Hokies also landed one of the top prep school prospects in offensive tackle Silas Dzansi.
Looking ahead at the 2018 class, the Hokies currently have three commitments, all three-star prospects.
