The Virginia Tech Hokies signed most of their 2018 recruiting class during the early signing period, but were still looking to add a few more pieces. Defensive line has been a particular focus with VT showing interest in Javontae Jean-Baptiste, Jaevon Becton, and Jamarcus Chatman while trying to keep Cam Goode.
Today, the Hokies received some good news from one of their defensive line targets.
