In the meantime, here’s another one of those grab-bag blog posts to get your work week started …
– There aren’t any 2013 signees who are enrolled in Virginia Tech’s first summer session, which starts today.
There was some confusion about the status of five-star cornerback Kendall Fuller, who tweeted that he is in Blacksburg already. I’ve been told he won’t start until the second summer session, which starts July 9.
Expect a good chunk of the Hokies’ signing class to enroll then if they’ve qualified. Last year, 20 signees enrolled in July. This year, there won’t be that many, since seven already enrolled in January (Brandon Facyson, Carlis Parker, Parker Osterloh, Jonathan McLaughlin, Jerome Wright, Seth Dooley and Woody Baron). But given the timing of many high school graduations, the second summer session is the only one that works logistically for a lot of incoming freshmen.
The new one is expected to be completed by Aug. 1, at which time you’ll probably have gotten 100 or so scoreboard progress updates from me.
– Virginia Tech looks like it’ll be getting a visit from one of the top 2014 QB recruits in the country this weekend. Norman, Okla., quarterback David Cornwell tweeted last night that the Hokies are on his upcoming itinerary.
There’s Virginia Tech on May 31, Alabama on June 2 and Tennessee in late June. The recruiting sites continue to say Alabama is the favorite, but the Hokies have to be encouraged that they’re getting a visit.
247 Sports ranks Cornwell as the No. 1 pro-style quarterback in the 2014 class, while Rivals ranks him third.
– Lastly, I’d be remiss if I didn’t lead you to VTPhreak4evr’s blog, where he’s doing 130 games worth of old Virginia Tech highlights in 130 days this summer. This group of games is from 1993-98 and 2010-12, complementing the last batch, which went from 1999-2009.
If you’re a Virginia Tech fan, it’s fun to watch. At the very least, it’s interesting to see the evolution of TV coverage for college football.
