Not often do sports fans read the headline about their favorite college football team cancelling their spring football game. A storm passing through Blacksburg resulted in Tech’s decision to call off the game.
Even though the spring game’s cancellation disappointed fans, the Hokies’ recruiting class should still excite them for the upcoming season.
Virginia Tech made it a priority to target defense this year as they signed five linebackers this year, three of which are four-star recruits according to rivals.com. On the other side of the ball, Tech boosted their running backs by signing three. These additions come at a time when Tech has three starters returning on offense.
Fans who had hoped to see the 2012 squad will have to wait until Sept. 3 as the Hokies host the Georiga Tech Yellow Jackets.
