On Early Signing Day Wednesday, the Virginia Tech football team added 19 recruits to the Hokie family. Fifteen high school recruits signed on and four transfers also signed to step in and there is a lot of hope that they will step in next season and make an immediate impact.
If there is one takeaway from the Class of 2024, it's the success that head coach Brent Pry and his staff had recruiting within the state of Virginia. Under Justin Fuente, that bridge was burned and one thing that Pry knew two years ago when he took over, it was getting recruits from the Commonwealth to stay rather than leave for their careers.
Virginia got five recruits to commit and there is a lot of excitement around them, which there should be. Late Wednesday, Pry spoke about the incoming class and mainly signing all the Virginia talent.
"I think it's good progress. I'm super excited about the five Virginia kids we've signed. We're also bringing Kemari Copeland in as an in-state guy. Certainly, good progress this year, but we're just two years into the investment in this state,'' said Pry. "It's going to continue to pay off, in the next cycle and the next cycle. As we develop these relationships as 8th and 9th graders, getting to know these families. It's going to be important, and I think this is just scratching the surface.''
After the dust has settled, let's grade how the Early Signing Class for 2024 went.
