Wiggins Signal is Up

Let the speculation begin.

curiosity piqued!

If we came out of nowhere to get a verbal from Fleming during his visit I'm going to flip a shit.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

That would be pretty sweet, but also so far out that it would be hard to take it seriously.

Not what happened

wiggins signal anagrams to "swigs aligning" which is what's gonna happen when we all toast another blue chip commit

Coach retweeted this a couple of hours after the OP's tweet, for what it's worth.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

This tweet (2:07 pm) wasn't around to be retweeted at the time of the OP tweet (12:23 pm), but I appreciate the optimism.

I fail to see how this makes a difference in my wild baseless speculations.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Am I reading it right that (based on 247's rankings) that this is the #2 overall '20 recruit?

Hokies United l Ut Prosim

You are. And they're currently listing him 100% predicted to Penn State, which would probably be an even bigger coup! Granted, we're still two years from his commitment so anything can happen.

Not that it wouldn't be exciting but I would have absolutely zero faith in retaining a 5-Star out-of-state recruit over 2 years before he can even enroll.

Yes, not only that, he's also from Pennsylvania. 😈

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

I am eager to find out who this is.

Say what you want about the struggles in May, the staff seems to have rebounded with emphasis!

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

Are we sure this isn't referring to Payoute? Or would that type of post have dropped yesterday?

(I don't play Twitter)

It isn't Payoute. I am not sure who it is because I am not sure who Coach Wiggins recruiting targets are. He is the wide receivers coach, so it could be a skill position player.

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

It's not in reference to Payoute

Should we not be referencing to this as a "Wiggnal"? Feel like you missed a pretty easy opportunity there Joe.

I thought the Wiggnal was what the Lard Lad sent out when the donuts were fresh

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

The Wiggnal is up and when we have a string of commits, we're getting Wiggy with it.

Tayvion Robinson or Khalid Martin?

'Its easy to grin, when your ship comes in, and you've got the stock market beat,

I was thinking Robinson too. He has been active on his twitter toward the Kelly and Payoute commitments.

I went to my first Virginia Tech bowl game while I was in the womb.

Most believe Robinson is one of the two silent we already have and he will committing later this year, fyi the other silent is believed to be Riley Simmonds

Not VT

I know it's unlikely but has he named a leader or anything?

247 says he's 100% USCe at the moment

He's staying in-State

I just sit on my couch and b*tch. - HokieChemE2016

Just like Devyn Ford and "rep your state"

He's going to commit to South Carolina, then he's going to flip to NC State later in the year. I'd bank on that.

Interesting, why do you say that?

Just the amount of time he's spent at South Carolina, and the fact that he's 20 mins from State's campus and they really want him. It's a hunch

He's spent even more time in Raleigh

I just sit on my couch and b*tch. - HokieChemE2016

Orrrrr he's just going to commit to NC State in a couple hours.

God I hope not. I live in NC and work with some NC State people. They are truly some of the most unbearable fans in sports.

Wow you've never met a UVA, UNC, West Virginia, Florida State, Miami, Pitt, Big 10, or SEC fan?

'SEC fan' is the worst. You're not a fan of a single team, your a fan of 14? You can't pick just one, so you have to pick the entire conference? Fuck off guy.

Twitter me

#Bapn ain't EZ

Wanna win put boobie in! Let boobie spin coach!

Like I said I live in NC, so it makes it that much worse. It's definitely geographic. UNC fans are horrible, but they won't brag about football as much as State fans, they just start talking about basketball. What makes State fans the worst is that they always need attention because they get overshadowed by Duke and UNC in basketball and aren't good enough to separate themselves from those programs in football. They're like the little annoying sibling. Yea the oldest child might be cocky because they know they're great, but the youngest who just wants attention for menial accomplishments can be worse.

Working in Greensboro for an engineering company I can second all of this. At least the state guys stop coming by my desk once they are eliminated from Atlantic division championship. Unfortunately my company hires from Georgia Tech a lot... We really need to beat them this year.

Who do you work for in Greensboro? I'm from Greensboro but live in Winston Salem now.

Honda Aircraft. I'm a Greensboro native too.

Who do you work for in Winston-Salem? I'm from Winston-Salem and live in Winston Salem now.

NCHokie, awesome! Good to know some other TKPers are from the area. VTMaroonOrange, I work in Mt. Airy for Altec but I live in Plant 64 in Winston.

Shot in the dark here - is he from a Carolina?

I have 0 expectation that we get him but good lord it would be awesome if we did.

I'd do a cartwheel bud style.

Tahj Gary, three star running back

He would be a huge win. Not to take anything away from Devyn Ford but watching Gary's film makes me think he may have a larger positive effect earlier. The guy is fast and he's a battering ram.

Which stage of post recruit rejection is this? lol

I think it's the final one after "acceptance." It's the "we are better off without him anyway."

Am I the only one who thinks the money bag emoji might not be a good idea in tweets about recruits?

It's only one moneybag emoji

I was told by someone who reads the paywalls that it is Jordan Houston 3*** RB

No insiders have even hinted at who it might be. It's all speculation over there just as it is in this thread.

Two Days Later

@Fightin_Gobbler

Go Hokies

Go Falcons

On 247 they are saying to be patient and let it happen as it might take a few days. And that it was important to the recruit and coaches that nothing get leaked until he commits.

Which sucks because that's exactly why we pay every month, to hear the leaks

Recruit Prosim

I'd rather get the recruits, and that the recruits be happy with us.

This is what I would've put, but I'm at work.

Me too, I was just trying to help from a more free workplace.

There's a camp in the 757 today.

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

So Devyn Ford is going to announce his flip there?

"Some days you’re a horse and some days you’re a horse’s ass. I’ve been a horse’s ass for a little while." - Roy Halladay

Probably not.

However, it's our way to remind ODU we're the big dog comin in....

Let's Go

HOKIES

we gonna walk into the 757 like M'baku introducing himself toward the beginning of Black Panther

"Some days you’re a horse and some days you’re a horse’s ass. I’ve been a horse’s ass for a little while." - Roy Halladay

...I'm not sure you're remembering correctly how that ends for M'baku.

Warning: this post occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)..

He ends up being the biggest badass in the end because he's the guy who lowkey saved the day for everyone, despite the small setback at the beginning?

"Some days you’re a horse and some days you’re a horse’s ass. I’ve been a horse’s ass for a little while." - Roy Halladay

SPOILER ALERT:
still rather be the hero who chokes M'baku out in hand to hand combat and still kills the bad guy in the end.

Warning: this post occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)..

The only reason he had the opportunity to kill Killmonger was because of the actions of M'baku earlier to save his life

Lets not pretend like M'Baku's entrance wasn't badass though. We'll come in badass, and still walk out the heroes.

lol, I'm just bored at work fucking around man. ...I finished all my work for the day by 736. ...I work from 7-4. Going to be a looooooong day.

I think the last time I saw you use that Gif we landed Dax. So patience it is!

It's my go to gif when I know something is in the wind. I use it for all upcoming announcements. This one has been super quiet and leads me to believe it's for a very specific reason. Maybe due to the 757 camp going on. Momentum is huge

What a wild ride this past month and a half has been.

Welcome to VT football recruiting. I started doing this The past 3 years and man have they been crazy. Hunter, Dax, and Ford drama can age a man's beard.

It's alot of fun to watch if I could block out the fan side reaction.

I think the big announcement we've all been waiting for is that the Fuller and Edmunds brothers are going to sit down this week and sign letters of intent (to VT of course) for all their future offspring. In 20 years or so, the VT football roster might be made up entirely of Fullers and Edmunds.

Is it football season yet?

This idea needs to go plaid, so both fams know that we mean it.

can we make it double plaid, one for each family.

Posts should go plaid at 69. Thats a win for everyone... just sayin'

Is it football season yet?

We know about the brothers, but are there any sisters in the families?
Have we really not considered setting up any social mixers to get these folks "together" more? The potential is through the roof here.

Is it football season yet?

if I hooked up with an Edmonds or fuller sister I would take their name on wedding day just to carry on the tradition.

In other words you idiots all are calling 877-CROOT-NO and it is the sole reason why there has been no recruiting news!

GET OUT OF HERE WITH YOUR DAMN LOGIC, I KNOW WHAT I SAID

Nah it's a 'silent W' ;)

take out both o's and substitute with a u with an umlaut. Problem solved.

So what number does that equate to when I dial? Is it an 8 or something else?

Tbh I wasn't expecting a followup question.

No worries. I figured it out. This is the correct number to dial:

I'm guessing you've never watched Uncle Grandpa. I refuse to believe than ounce of 'work' has ever been done on that show. Unless you qualify smoking enough weed to kill a small elephant as 'work'.

Oh good. I thought that gif was the new Wiggins Signal. I'm really relieved it's not.

No, but it might be a thread-killer, so I'll keep that in my back pocket for the next time unsubstantiated rumors start circulating 🤔

Okay. Let's start with some basic questions:

  1. Where is that from?
  2. How did you find it?
  3. What does it mean to you?
  4. Is that really a slice of pizza and a banana?

I guess that should cover the basics.

I can answer the first question.
It's from a show on Cartoon Network called Uncle Grandpa. The character is named Pizza Steve. As for the rest of your questions, I'll refer you to my basic philosophy on life: If you have to ask, you probably don't want to know.

1- This made me crack up at work.
2- For such a young toddler that is impressive agility and decent acceleration. A little stiff in the hips but if UVa got a commitment now they could be looking forward to adding ACC caliber talent in about 18 years.

Going to need a lot of help in the footwork department too. 3 false steps out of 10 in that gif? Fuente will eat that shit up with misdirection (because he is definitely pulling a Beamer and never leaving).

UVA won't be able to land him, unless his family moves to Europe.

The Poster Formerly Known As The Spirit Of Bernard Basham

(Well, were waiting gif)

I do think tweets like the Wiggnal would be more effective at creating buzz and excitement if they came out when a silent commitment was scheduled for release within a couple of days (max three days) rather than a week or more.

If the Bat signal were left up for a week in Gotham, I would start to worry that he were dead. Lol.

What if Batman forgot to set up his out of office reply? He's not dead. Bruce Wayne's just in Cancun. Maybe we just need to get at Wiggins on the coconut telegraph.

Well, if a man can't chill at the beach and get what he ordered, he just may be the one with the match.

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used."

You make an excellent case. I've also never seen them together.

I have no problem with Wiggins hitting the beach, but he needs to take care with his signals. It's the off-season, and we Hokie fans need something to believe in.
