2011 National Signing Day: Virginia Tech Secures Commitments From 22 Players

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.
