Virginia Tech had a smaller recruiting weekend for the Wofford game, but did have some notable targets including 2024 three-star Riley Trujillo from Jacksonville, FL; one of the top 10 dual-threat QBs in his class.

His visit to Blacksburg went quite well as he shared with us.

"It was amazing," Trujillo said. "It was great to feel the energy and be a part of the game day experience. I got to spend time with the coaches and the campus is amazing," Trujillo said.

He also expanded on what the itinerary of his visit included.

"I got to hang out with the coaches and tour the facilities. The game day experience was awesome and I was able to hear the coaches' speech after the game. I toured the campus. It was a great time and I really enjoyed my visit," Trujillo said.

His visit included spending time with head coach Brent Pry, offensive coordinator Tyler Bowen, QBs coach Brad Glenn, and offensive analyst Brian Crist spending the most time with Glenn and Crist. He had this to say about his time with Brent Pry.

"He is a great guy and coach. I appreciate that he was able to spend some time with me on game day. He said he was glad I was able to visit," Trujillo said.

Trujillo had this to say about his conversation with Tyler Bowen.

"He’s a great coach and guy. It was good to see him again, he came out to see me in spring practice and we got along really well then too," Trujillo said.

His time and conversations with Brad Glenn went well as he told us.

"It was great. We had the opportunity to talk about his background and how he develops quarterbacks. We talked about how he likes triple threat quarterbacks and I think I would be a great fit at VT," Trujillo said.

He also enjoyed getting to spend some time with Brian Crist.

"It was great. He really knows the quarterback position well and has so much knowledge to share," Trujillo said.

All of those conversations with Tech's offensive staff also made him feel even more confident that he would fit well in the Hokies' offense.

"After talking to all the offensive coaches, we share a lot of the same ideas on what a good offense looks like and how my skills as a dual-threat QB would benefit Virginia Tech," Trujillo said.

So how did this visit impact his recruitment and where Virginia Tech stands in it?

"Virginia Tech is a great school and has a great football program and is definitely in consideration," Trujillo said.

The Hokies have had plenty of recruiting success in Jacksonville over the years with Tech putting themselves in a strong position early on for Riley Trujillo.
