Tech will hold its annual football camp early this week in Blacksburg. The camp runs from July 13-16. Many top prospects are expected to attend at least one day including Ryan Shuman, Sean Glennon, Jacob Phillips, Daniel Meager, and many more.
On the fullback front, Tech may offer two fullbacks at camp, one we have confirmed as being Tony Fiametta from Maryland. Fiametta is a 6', 213 pound prospect from Walkersville, MD who runs under a 4.65.
VTInsider's first premium chat took place this past week. Several things came out of that chat, some which we will mention in the first edition of VTI Gobbler Tracks. First, the football team is looking good and several linemen including Vince Hall has also come west to Blacksburg and, much to the delight of Hokie fans, is bigger than expected.
On the recruiting front, Tech has just around 50 scholarships out at this point. Three of those prospects attend Hargrave and are at the receiver, defensive back, and defensive line positions. Also identified in the chat were some of Tech's top linebacker prospects which included the likes of Brian Toal, Jerod Mayo, Purnell Sturdivant, Hugh D'Imperio, and D.J. Grant.
Va WR Richard Taylor will likely make a decision in the next two weeks. Expect Taylor to pick Maryland.
At the quarterback position, Tech has a great shot at both Sean Glennon and Jordan Steffy. Word is that we should expect Steffy to narrow his choices to Maryland and Tech before deciding and may take some time. In this case, Tech could get a commitment from Glennon before Steffy decides. If that happens, expect the staff to still accept a commitment from Steffy should he want to be a Hokie.
Lastly, Tech got a visit from Jerod Mayo this week and it eased the mind of the Kecoughtan prospect. Mayo, who previously listed UVa as his favorite, now lists Tech at the top with the Wahoos. For the entire story on Mayo's visit, click here.
Stay tuned throughout the week for more on Tech recruiting updates and next week for the latest edition of VTI Gobbler Tracks.
