Top Recruits in Virginia Tech’s 2013 Recruiting Class Virginia Tech's top recruit Kendall Fuller and Head Coach Frank Beamer   The 2013 recruiting class is a class with some great talent that will be able to make an immediate impact on the field next year. Overall, Virginia Tech brought in twenty one recruits which includes two ESPN 150 recruits and four ESPN 300 recruits. The Hokies are ranked as the nineteenth overall in the country and third in the ACC. Virginia Tech generally gets a lot out of any recruiting class and with some top end prospects in this class that will not change any time soon. The following recruits are the highest rated in the class and will most likely have the biggest impact for the Hokies in the years to come. Kendall Fuller, CB         Kendall Fuller is the last of the four Fuller brothers to come to Tech and is the highest rated recruit coming to Blacksburg since Tyrod Taylor. He is ranked as the ninth overall prospect in this year’s class and the number two cornerback. Fuller will immediately compete for the third cornerback position or even starting corner if Antone Exum is not ready for the season opener. Head Coach Frank Beamer also hinted that Fuller may see several reps at wide receiver next fall. Along with being a top tier cornerback he was also an all-district wide receiver.  After seeing three of his other brothers play and have a major impact for the Hokies it would be a major surprise if Kendall doesn’t become a star. Holland Fisher, S Virginia Tech almost always has their recruiting class set come national signing day and the same was true this year’s besides Fisher. Fisher committed to Tech last winter, but in the last few months Alabama was making a major push to steal him, but Fisher didn’t waiver and he signed his letter of intent today. Fisher is the eighty third overall prospect and the tenth best safety in the country. He played linebacker in high school but will move to a safety position for Tech, mostly likely rover which is the more physical safety position. Buck Hodges, QB Bucky Hodges, out of Salem High School in Virginia Beach looks as though he could be the next Logan Thomas. While Thomas, 250lbs, has almost thirty pounds on Hodges, Hodges, 6’6”, is just as tall as Thomas and has shown great arm strength. Hodges is ranked as the fourth best dual-threat quarterback in the country and the tenth best player in the state. He shows the athleticism and pocket awareness to be a great quarterback in the future. Hodges will most likely redshirt this year, just like Thomas did his freshman year because the Hokies already have a clear starting quarterback. Cequan Jefferson, ATH Jefferson is the third best prospect in this year’s class out of Richmond, VA. He comes in to Tech as an athlete who played both wide receiver and cornerback in high school. He will most likely play cornerback for the Hokies and depending on the depth could possibly redshirt the upcoming fall. At only 163 pounds Jefferson could use a season in the strength and conditioning program and to learn the defense. Even though he may redshirt he can still be the next in the line of great Virginia Tech secondary players because of his athleticism and quickness. The combination of Fisher, Fuller, and Jefferson in the defensive secondary could eventually become one of the best units in the country. Braxton Pfaff, G Pfaff is ranked the 18th best guard in the country and the 17th overall prospect in the state. Pfaff already has the size, 6’4” 285lbs, to play at the college level. His strength is in the run game which is exactly what Tech needs. The Hokies plan to get back to running the ball and becoming a tough offensive line under new offensive coordinator Scot Loelfler. Beamer said in a press conference today that Pfaff will play tackle for the Hokies in 2013. Virginia Tech has two solid guards already in place for the 2013 season, but has questions about either tackle positions on the offensive line. Pfaff has shown that he has the size and footwork to be able to move to tackle and could compete for a starting tackle position this fall.
