As National Signing Day winds down, Virginia Tech appears to be close to finalizing their list of 22 commitments. However, it's not nearly as impressive a class as many of their top ACC rivals, including Virginia, Florida State and Clemson.
The class is currently ranked 35th by Rivals.com and includes four four-star recruits. The four four-star recruits are defensive tackle Kris Harley (No. 3 recruit in Indiana, No. 24 DT), defensive back Kyshoen Jarrett (No. 5 in Pennsylvania, No. 18 among CBs), defensive end Corey Marshall (No. 7 in Virginia, No. 21 among DEs) and safety Ronny Vandyke (No. 8 in Virginia, No. 21 among safeties). They also stole three-star tight end Ryan Malleck away from Maryland a few days ago. Malleck broke a commitment to Maryland once Ralph Friedgen was fired.
However, it's still an underwhelming class. SB Nation's Virginia Tech blog Gobbler County did not think it was a disastrous haul, but it was still disappointing, especially considering the success Virginia had this year.
I don't think this class is as disastrous as chicagomaroon made it sound earlier this morning. However, it is a disappointing class that isn't nearly as good as those who look a little too much on the bright side are making it out to be.
