No surprises for Hokies on signing day

The best news for Virginia Tech on signing day was that there were no surprises.
 
Coach Frank Beamer says he and his staff felt like they have had their class of 18 recruits wrapped up for some time, and even their worst season in 20 years didn't cost the Hokies players they wanted.
 
The class includes 5-start recruit Kendall Fuller, a cornerback from Baltimore ranked among the top prospects in the country. He'll be the fourth Fuller brother to play for Beamer with the Hokies.
 
Beamer says he's pleased that a 7-6 season and some coaching changes didn't alter the class.
 
Virginia Tech also signed Bucky Hodges, a 6-foot-5, 230-pound quarterback from Virginia Beach who draws comparisons to the Hokies' quarterback the past two seasons, Logan Thomas.
