Jalen has a offer from alabama and he ain't a five star?

Roses are red. FSU is ded

I read it wrong. 247 rates him as 4 Star but he doesn't have a composite ranking yet.

He has a non-committable offer until he gets the bump to 5*. Probably.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Other way around, once a 4* gives Saban the pledge they get the BamaBump™ to 5


Good to see Coach Fu and staff come after some of the prep school talent in NJ. First with JJB and now with Berger. Hoping to see these efforts come through in future classes

I love seeing us start to go after more top guys. When I look at our top targets (i know its according to 247 but bear with me) it seems like we are going for more top talent than previous years. The coaching staff obviously knows they wont get them all, but in order to put together a recruiting class at all, they have to be pretty confident about a number of them. Just playing a percentages game I think the more top guys we go after, the more we will get.

It's still soooo early, but the fact that we're having top prospects visit and have loads of 4* guys that list us in one of their top groups is super encouraging. It seems like this staff is making recruiting a big priority.

EDIT: After saying this I checked 247 and Nyquee has yet another CB for the good guys. I saw an old interview where he said he wasn't going to commit until after his senior season, but I wonder if that has changed and would love to see a big commit provide us with some early momentum.

I bet he makes a decision well before the season.

I think so too. This interview was done before the early signing period, and I feel like that changes things for a lot of kids. I know Nyquee has been recruited since he was in 8th grade and might just want it over with. I think the early signing period will result in a lot more summer committments so guys don't have to worry about it during their final season.

Jalen Berger and Porter Rooks are 5* names.

Heres a question for you pros: what determines a recruits "temperature" status in 247's profiles? Theres no associations with crystal balls that I see so how is warm vs cool vs favorite determined?

They record their temperature at the official visit

Based on something they recently said, either a top group or something like that.

what feedback, if any, they've gotten from the recruit...or really anyone (girlfriend's bff) or anything (family dog) claiming to know

You would be correct. Getting better across the board at guard will help the running game out significantly.

It seems like we have a legitimate shot to land an OL class of Hanson, Hudson, Simmons and Beaver. If we could lock them up early then swing for the fences with Carroll and Wright for the rest of the cycle that would be amazing.

As an aside, Beaver isn't as highly rated, but he has my favorite film of all the OL targets we have a shot with after Carroll and Wright. He plays mean and finishes his blocks. Hanson is right with him in my opinion.

Plus, his (Beaver's) name will incite so many double entendres/puns. Just sayin'.

So your saying if Beaver can't hold up our Hooker will receive a sack?

If the Beaver is too loose, you end up with a Hooker in a sack.

A Hooker without a Beaver is a not the kind of product anyone wants to see on the field

Unless you are recruiting Johnson instead.

I appreciate all the support, and I appreciate all the hate I am getting. I will continue to work as hard as I can to be the best I can be and bring this team a championship. Go Hokies 🐔 - Josh Jackson

Aren't we recruiting a kid name Taveon Freshwater?

It's a different take on the Beaver name, but I do chuckle at the thought of a Freshwater Beaver sideline picture.

Go on

Is there a story here?

The reason CJ Reavis was kicked out of VT was some hear say that Melvin Keihn reported to the school officials. CJ was never found guilty a crime however whatever did occur it was enough to be found guilty by the student conduct comitte (or whatever they are called) thus expelling him from school. Keihn was quickly disowned by the rest of the football team for being snitch and then transferred to maryland.

Also supposedly Mcmillian ended up dating the girl and the team iced him out because if it.

Melvin Keihn's girlfriend got CJ Reavis to throw a sex party (that Melvin was not invited to). In the fallout, some false rape accusations were levelled resulting in Reavis's expulsion which, in turn, led to Keihn's transfer.

I feel like I was better off not knowing any of this.

To back you up in stating that they were false rape accusations, because I know they are tough situations and false accusations aren't taken lightly, there were pictures of them hanging out only a few weeks after she said it happened. Also, she was either on the soccer team or friends with soccer players and they sort of shunned her too because they knew she was lying about it as well.

Not to mention his submitting their entire texting history as part of his defense and the local prosecutor backing the hell off after reading it and seeing plainly that her account didn't match up to her own (written) words.

I know no one meant anything bad by their comments but I kindly request that we avoid making public comments about cases like these.

I'm very close to a young lady who was once sexually abused by a prominent man and almost everyone discredited her story and slandered her within the organization. Years after she left the company, another woman reported a similar story and the whole truth came out. In my friend's case, there was welcomed advances but when things started going further than she wanted, he wouldn't stop. I suspect there are numerous cases like hers.

I have no knowledge about the Reavis case and again, I know none of you meant harm, but I've learned that with sensitive information like this, it's usually best to not comment unless you have first-hand knowledge of exactly what did and did not happen.

That was exactly my first thought...

Are we one of the 50 programs that will be effected by the FBI investigation?

Football probably not. Basketball probably.

My optimist, naive self likes to believe we're perfect and would never do any wrong. The realist in me realizes that if that's the game everybody was playing, we were probably in it as well, but like some said in the other thread, we probably fall under the "small fish" category. It sure is going to be interesting to see what happens to college basketball once everything unfolds.

I'm afraid that we're in the sweet spot of big enough to send a message but not too big to fail

Not to get anyone's hopes up (lol) but I think there's a decent chance Houston pulls the trigger this weekend.

Spots are gonna be veeeeery tight this cycle, and the coaches are communicating that with the recruits. I bet we have most of our class wrapped up by the end of the summer.

Not to get anyone's hopes up (lol) but

Any idea when the silent commit becomes public? Seems like a recruiting weekend would be a good time for that.

Honestly no idea anymore. Can't get a straightforward answer.

Is it one that you is worth waiting for & you see it keep getting strung out like the whole Gervin episode where he kept pushing it back or do you think our coaches tell him to either commit or move on

They'll wait for this one. Gervin ckmmitted like 7 times, so when he wouldn't do it publicly, they parted ways.

So #sauces...I don't have any really...but I did hear a certain Oline prospect really likes us. He may or may not carry 5 star status. Everyone thinks he will go to OSU! I'm not convinced!

Stick it in

Hmmm I like it

Roses are red. FSU is ded

But Bud Elliot gave a CB To that 5 star the other day

Roses are red. FSU is ded

I just know he really fit in with Vice and the other recruits

Stick it in

If I am thinking of the Wright recruit, I believe he got bumped to "Warm" on 247 sports

How highly regarded is Jordan Houston? He appears undersized to me, but if the coaches like him I'm on board.

They love him, as do I. Big priority. I think I mentioned in a different thread that he'll be more of a utility man than a rb. Line up in the slot, jet sweep, short route, take some handoffs, etc.

Not sure where we stand with Jakai Moore but his recruitment has officially blown up: FSU offer yesterday.

VT,Miami, PSU, OSU not enough for someone to be considered a legit prospect?

Rankings will change a lot but right now according to 247 composite we have the prospects ranked 636, 638, and 639 while also being the only team listed as warm for 637 Malik Washington. This is a sign he needs to commit as well.

Can we make the sequential number two digits?

Recruit Prosim

eff that lets go sequential single digits

Well we are listed as "warm" for 34,35, and 36 so lets make this a theme for this class.

Hell yes

Cool, thanks.

Always thought it was walking but nope 2 different images.

I know a kid from Harrisonburg High School was there. Class of 2019 APB... I personally think he is flying under the radar. Every night he plays he is the best player on the field, even at Stafford High in the playoff game they lost.

I'm not sure what the staff thinks of him (would love to know if LA or BAG know anything about him).


Is it football season yet?

In case anyone is curious who he's talking about...
Marcus Robinson-Jenkins
5'10" 183lb RB per his HUDL profile
not listed yet on Rivals, ESPN or 247

Going to guess like every other recruiting weekend it went great, kids were really impressed, and this class has the makings of being really special.

Any updates on the weekend ?

Since VT isnt taken as big of a class like the last two years, the approach has changed and the kids know they need to get on the boat soon or they will be left out. Of course there are the few that will always have a spot but dont be surprised to be almost done with this class by the end of the summer. I can see a few pulling the trigger over the next few weeks.

Are we more likely to land a 5 star recruit, or have 2 1st round draft picks

This was perfect. As I was scrolling down, I said to myself "why can't we have both?" and the I saw this gif. I have but one leg to give.

I know 2020 is a long way off and he's likely to get a lot more offers, but it's great to see strong feelings and positivity towards us this early.

"VT is home," Sampah said following the visit. "It was a great visit. It is always a great day when spending time with the VT staff and family.

"I love their coaching philosophies and the structure of their program," he added. "I feel as comfortable at VT alongside Coach Fuente and Coach Foster as I do with my high school Head Coach. That means a lot to me and is a key ingredient I am looking for throughout my recruiting process."

question - why do we never seem to be in the mix for anyone coming out of Episcopal HS in Alexandria?
Guys like Ajavon (19), Turner-Mohammed (19), Vilain (17), Sutherland (17), Rene (16), Goff (16).

It's only been the last few classes that they've produced any P5 prospects but they all seem to go out of state.

Episcopal is a boarding school where students come from all over the country or a different country entirely. I know at least a few are from Canada, explaining why Michigan and Notre Dame are usually in it.


BMW covered it, but yeah - kids that come from out of the state to go to boarding school usually move back to the general region they are from to go to college. West coast kids usually end up back at like USC UCLA Stanford Washington Oregon etc. Canada/Northern kids usually end up at Michigan ND etc.

Gotta get Danny Coale to go do some crootin' at his old HS.


Rivals updated their top 250, Darnell Wright is now #2, Devyn Ford is #9, and Savion Jackson went up 94 spots!

Ah crap. I guess we can assume Savion got a Bama offer?

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

How is NC2VT looking this year outside of Savion? I know we are really invested in Savion, but what is our interest level in other players like J.R. Walker, Anthony Harris, Khalid Martin, Joshua Harris, Freshwater, Kenion? I've heard something about all of them at one point or another but was just wondering if we're really going after them or they're not a top priority. The talent in NC for 2019 looks ridiculous and a couple guys, Josh and Anthony Harris, just got huge bumps and even grabbing one guy out of the top 10 this year in NC doesn't look easy.

I don't think we'll be as dependent on NC this year as we were last year, but we'll still definitely take a solid group. We're in a good spot with savion, I'd say either us or NCSU right now, until Clemson offers. I'd say the same thing about JR Walker but don't think he gets a Clemson offer. We're in a great spot for both Anthony Harris and Khalid Martin and I hope we would take both, but I think we may only have room for one safety this cycle. I absolutely love Josh Harris and think he and Savion need to be our #1a #1b targets on D this cycle, but not sure how interested he is to be honest.

FYI Bowick is a 4* in my eyes.

I am from NC and really hate NC State fans. It kills me when we lose football recruits to them. But yea Clemson offers always make me wary but that would be nice if they're not there to tempt Walker. I would be very surprised if we took two safetys this class as that room is already so crowded. Unless they want to rotate one of them somewhere else, but I haven't seen enough film to have an opinion on either of them at corner. Haven't seen film on Josh Harris but the dude just jumped from like an 87 to a 94 in the composite rankings. Even before that he was one of the few DTs we were looking at in this class and I was hoping we would really go after him. Thanks for the insight I was very in the dark on a lot of those guys. No shot at Freshwater or Kenion?

I also think Bowick is much better than his rating. After reading all I could about him he seems very impressive and a player that is far more refined than most receivers his age. His coach said he has the best hands he's ever seen and the guy coaches in Charlotte. He's seen some great players.

Don't know much about Kenion honestly. Freshwater we are in a good spot for but needs to focus on academics (sorry mods).

I am from NC and really hate NC State fans.

Lived in NC for many years... I agree, the worst fanbase in the Carolinas.

Is it football season yet?

As much as I hate them, this article shows their most wanted prospects for 2019 and each slide has a link to a profile they have written about each player. Since we are going after a lot of the same recruits I gave it a read and nothing makes me happier than to see a NC State 247 writer say that VT is the leader for some of their top targets.

I think they drop back to their usual 3rd or 4th place in the atlantic this year while we continue to rise. Hopefully this betters our odds in recruiting against them.

I agree and think they've built the talent enough to be a solid 3rd instead of 5th in the Atlantic EVERY SINGLE YEAR. Now we just have to convince the recruits who want to win of this fact and win the Coastal this year to solidify our superiority over them.

Im in agreement, a DL class of Josh Harris, Savion, Adairous, Smiley, and Beamon would be an awesome haul. I think Savion is a must get with Harris hopefully seeing Settle and Ricky getting drafted high will push him to come to the good guys. Like French mentioned, Savion seems like an absolute beast and think he and Ford will end up consensus 5*. JR Walker/Freshwater would be nice additions too but not sure what position Walker ends up playing.

Don't expect Smiley to be part of that group.

What happened with Smiley?

we are apparently cooling on him. and perhaps the other way around too.

Dunno why

Great to see considering a lot of our current targets that we lead for (Nyquee) are seeing their rankings drop like a rock.

Our potential class of corners really is taking hits in the rankings. Tank I assume his drop is because of his size, but Nyquee really has taken a big hit. He is still a highly rated corner, it just scares me when guys drop going into their senior season because it makes me think early on they looked good because of athleticism alone and now scouts are realizing they might not actually be that good.

Seeing Jesse get bumped up makes me nervous though. From talking with family friends of his they think he is gone if clemson offers. Hopefully Fuente and company can keep building relationships to prevent that.

Yeah, just feels like we are just keeps my Hanson warm for Clemson.

But I've just been keeping my wife warm for 17 years. Sometimes, Michael Fassbender never calls.

Always have to worry about Clemson poaching recruits. But it would seem pretty stupid for him to flip after he was so ready to make his decision that he signed the day after NSD. If he had thoughts of flipping if Clemson showed up, why not wait longer?

I got some beers. Let's drink 'em!

If that handsome devil Ryan Reynolds ever comes knocking I'm screwed.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

I got some beers. Let's drink 'em!

Hudson, Houston, Ford, and Hawkins all getting some CBs for the good guys in the past couple days. Really hope a couple of them commit soon. I think Hudson would be huge out of that group. Ford has always been top on our list and we're going after him with everything we have, but to get a highly touted OL commit with a bunch of big time offers that isn't our crown jewel for the class would be awesome.

yeah, good stuff.... I would be happy with all four of those guys. Quick guess at the best class we might be able to get:

QB (0-1): None (although I wouldn't mind taking a flyer on a guy currently under the radar if Corny/Foo like him)
RB (2): Ford + Houston (Houston could be a good complement to Ford out of the slot and backfield)
WR (3): Bowick, Kenion, Robinson
TE (0-1): Gallo
OL (3-4): Hanson, Simonds, Hudson and wait it out on Wright/Carroll
DE (2-3): Jackson and Beamon (feels like we could have a chance at Cross too)
DT (3): Harris, Jones and someone we aren't talking about yet
LB(0-1): Freshwater
DB/Athlete (5-6): Sainristil, Carter, Walker, Hawkins, Martin and Harris

You think we have a legit shot with DT Harris? Would biggest get besides Ford to replace Ricky after this year. Also, you think we also grab Tank with the DB's and Pickeney with the WR's. That class above would be ridiculous especially if we could tell Wright that he could replace Nijman as a true Fresh LT next year.

I don't think we will pursue Tank as heavily as other DB's the rest of the way. I think we're still going to show interest and we might take him if he wants to commit, but I expect his ranking will continue to slide and a lot of his offers will soften.

I think Harris is about like Sandridge last year, a bigtime DT that we really need that has some interest in us. But it depends on his SEC interest. I could see him visiting but us not getting him, but it's really early. It's tough to tell who has legitimate interest or not at this point. I didn't think we had a legitimate shot at KJ Henry at this point last year.

Tank's rival 250 rank did not change with this update, and Freshwater's improved like 30 spots

I have no feel for the WRs in this class. We have so many listed high on our board but I have heard very little about any of them.

I think Carroll is ND all the way but there is an outside shot at Wright. Don't forget Beaver and some other guys that are starting to pop up like William Harrod.

I like where we stand with Jackson just don't like our history with guys that are good as he is.

Harris seems like he is going to get flooded with offers and forget about us but I would love to have him inside. Dude could end up being the size of Vita Vea.

LB I have no clue on as well. I feel like freshwater is falling off and haven't heard too many other names.

The secondary and athletes class looks good though. Hoping Hawkins finishes strong and commits, love Sainristil but think we will only get one between Martin and Harris.

Yeah, Beaver could be the slow play. Or the guy you take like Tenuta because he's got potential, but you keep pushing on the big names.

I think we've got a shot with Carroll if he visits before committing. I've thought all along it would be Minney (where his dad played), ND (big catholic family) or VT where his brother played. I expect he will eventually not want to play for ND's hemorrhoid of a coach, but he'll end up at Minney.

Bowick got a rating bump on 247, now the #20 prospect in NC

Also, 4* S Lewis Cline is transferring to a HS in Texas. He was teammates with commit Mike Sainristil.

Can't help but think that Cline transferring is a pretty big hit to our chances with him.

I think he was always a bit of a reach. I think we're going more for Anthony Harris and Khalid Martin. Both really solid prospects with the former recently getting a huge bump in his rankings up to a 4 star. I honestly think we will only take one of them anyway this cycle so I wouldn't expect much from Cline. I wouldn't mind being wrong though. Kid can play.

Just for the sake of clarity (and not for the sake of being the spelling police):

Kid's name is "Cine", not "Cline".

And yes, he'd be a great get.
