While Virginia Tech received lots of commitments on national signing day, three former Hokies signed with other NCAA programs. Defensive linemen Trevon Hill and Darius Fullwood and wide receiver Sam Denmark all made their moves official on Wednesday. The most notable of the three, Trevon Hill, signed with Miami on Wednesday. The former Hokies' defensive end has been looking for a new home since he was dismissed from the team in September. Hill was a major contributor for the Hokies, racking up 11.5 sacks and 20 tackles for loss during his time in Blacksburg. He played in 13 games in 2016 and 2017, making at least 37 tackles in each of those seasons. Fellow defensive lineman Darius Fullwood signed with FCS William and Mary on Wednesday. Fullwood had been with Virginia Tech since the 2016 season, but was never a starter. He played in 12 games in 2017 and nine games in 2018, but did not make a tackle all of 2018. He registered one quarterback hurry last season. Denmark left Virginia Tech seeking more playing time as well, landing with Coastal Carolina. Denmark redshirted in 2016 before seeing action in just three games in 2017. He made two receptions for 28 yards and one touchdown against North Carolina in 2017. Both Fullwood and Denmark were buried on the depth chart and were not likely to see playing time in the upcoming season.
