Dahman McKinnon, an outside linebacker from Hope Mill, N.C., is the only Virginia Tech signee who will participate in the first summer session, according to an email from John Ballein, Tech’s director of football operations.
The first session goes from today until June 30. More players will begin in the second summer session, which begins July 2 and ends Aug. 11.
The Hokies report for preseason practice on Aug. 1, beginning preparation for the season with the first of 21 practices the following day. Summer workouts and conditioning programs are independent of the coaches, who cannot work with players until they report as a team.
Virginia Tech had two January enrollees from its 2012 class — running back J.C. Coleman and cornerback Donaldven Manning – and another who grayshirted in 2011, defensive lineman Dewayne Alford.
