News from the Recruiting Battles

It's no secret to those who follow college football recruiting that Virginia Tech got off to a very slow start for the 2016 cycle but that appears to be changing. In just the past couple of weeks they've added two top 100 wide receivers; Divine Deablo (pictured above) and Phil Patterson, a standout outside linebacker and top 20 player out of Virginia; Tavante Beckett, and a talented offensive lineman out of Georgia with over 20 offers to his credit; Patrick Kearns. Not that these four players will necessarily get the Hokies into the top tier (in terms of recruiting) in the ACC (the fact that FSU, Clemson, Miami, North Carolina, Duke, and Louisville have all gotten off to such excellent starts) but it's a decent turnaround and in the wake of a three season run of going 22-17, Beamer and the fellows will take whatever good news that's available.
