The three-day 'early' window for 2018 cycle recruits to sign their national letter of intent is upon us. The overwhelming majority of Virginia Tech's verbal committments have signaled they will sign Wednesday. And that's exactly how Justin Fuente wants it.
"If you're committed, I expect you to sign," Fuente told reporters per the Richmond Times-Dispatch. "If you don't sign, you're not committed. ... Now, I'm sure that won't — I mean, we'll see what happens, but that's what I expect."
"At the moment, it doesn't affect my commitment to Virginia Tech right now," Clark said. "I'm signing in February and I plan on taking other trips. It's something for me and my family to figure out, but I will probably take three [visits] next month.
"There have been a lot of schools coming at me, and I can tell you who has been showing me a lot of interest recently. That would be Nebraska, Missouri and UCF. I haven't taken one official yet."
Clark is planning to take his first official visit to Virginia Tech when the NCAA dead period ends.
Graham has been committed to the Hokies since October, but Georgia Tech has maintained its pursuit of him, resulting in the official visit. Graham, a four-star prospect in the "athlete" category (247 Sports composite), would be a valuable pickup for the Jackets, who do not have a quarterback in the recruiting class and only have three on the roster – TaQuon Marshall, Lucas Johnson and Tobias Oliver.
Graham's decision may rest, at least in part, on if and how much he wants to play quarterback. Virginia Tech is recruiting him as an athlete, meaning he could go anywhere (and probably not quarterback), while Georgia Tech is recruiting him as a quarterback.
And finally, 5-star defensive end K.J. Henry announces and signs tomorrow.
Our very own Kj Henry will be making his commitment this Wednesday at 4:20 in the new gym. Kj is a 5 Star DE & is rated #3 in the nation at his position #5 overall by ESPN, he is choosing between Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, South Carolina, & Virginia Tech, be there! #WestFo https://t.co/7R5cd484Xg— West Forsyth Pride (@WestFoPride) December 16, 2017
