The Virginia Tech Hokies have been gaining multiple commitments for the Class of 2014 and Class of 2015 throughout the 2013 season as the Hokies have had a strong defense and are only a few plays away from having only one loss instead of four right now. The Hokies could also still go to the ACC Championship and recruits are showing a fair amount of interest once again in Virginia Tech football. Frank Beamer has never had a recruiting class that has really challenged to be at the top of the recruiting boards but the Hokies have always brought in hard workers that fit the system for the Hokies.
The Virginia Tech Hokies have just added a player who had been very lightly recruited but someone that the Hokies think could make an impact. The Virginia Tech Hokies got a commitment from defensive tackle Steve Sobczak who plays for undefeated Massaponax High School and is a teammate of Virginia Tech commit and four-star prospect Vincent Mihota. Sobczak was previously commited to James Madison University but Virginia Tech decided to give Sobczak his second scholarship offer which was enough to get him to come to Blacksburg.
Sobczak is a player that has been lightly recruited but the Hokies have brought in plenty of lightly recruited players who have become big time players. Kam Chancellor only had offers from JMU and Kent State before he commited to Virginia Tech. Of course, everybody knows Chancellor is now one of the best safeties in the NFL for the Seattle Seahawks. Danny Coale only had a grade of 69 when he was in the Class of 2007 but Coale was one of the best receivers ever for Virginia Tech. James Gayle wasn’t given a grade by ESPN but Gayle has had a strong career at Virginia Tech and will likely be picked in the first 3 rounds of the NFL Draft. Sobczak is hoping that he can be the latest lightly-recruited player to go to Virginia Tech and become a big success.
