Virginia Tech 2013 Recruiting Team Needs: Filled Scholarships available for use: 19 Players targeted: 15 Scholarships offered: 15 Commits: 14 (Will update as players are signed) ESPN 150 #3 ATH/QB Damien Pettway 6'4" 205 lbs. - Projects well at QB with decent mobility and good throw power, has ideal size and could compete with Clemons for the starting job after a redshirt year ESPN 150 #4 FS Matt Dunn 6'4" 195 lbs. - Punishing tackler that will likely compete for the starting job the second he steps foot on campus. ESPN 150 #6 MLB Jason Swain 5'11" 209 lbs. - Great acceleration and solid tackling and coverage abilities will get Swain on the field sooner rather than later. ESPN 150 #7 SS Bryce Jefferson 6'2" 183 lbs. - Not the fastest kid around, but has great zone coverage skills and is very effective at breaking blocks in the run game. ESPN 150 #9 HB Erik Salyer 6'1" 202 lbs. - A strong running back who has good vision with the ball in his hands. Also very agile for a power back, allowing him to make cuts that most bigger backs couldn't ESPN 150 #10 SS Joey Smith 6'1" 204 lbs. - Big hitter who also possesses top notch zone coverage abilities, will fight with Jefferson for the starting SS position next year. #4 OLB/DE Lance Schroeder 6'2" 251 lbs. - Good size, but a bit slow for a OLB, may take a look at him as a DE in spring practice, as he will enroll early. #20 DE Brian Dotson 6'3" 242 lbs. - Decent at beating his blocker, but has great acceleration combined with a very talented power rush will make him a force to be reckoned with. #9 TE Matt Hopkins 6'5" 249 lbs. - Hopkins is a big body who is an adept blocker, in the receiving game he has decent hands, but gets a great realease off the line and can punish defenders. #14 TE Jamaal Purcell 6'4" 243 lbs. - Not a great pass catcher, but a solid blocker who will redshirt and probably work out as a FB to replace Leonard Pierce. #37 C Tony Fowler - Solid blocker with good acceleration to get to the edge in run blocking. #38 FS Matt Dawson 6'0" 189 lbs. - Dent hitter, but his lack of top end speed will likely keep him off the field during his career #46 C John Blair - Good run blocker, but will need to work on his footwork if he is to see significant playing time. #90 HB Joe Latimer 6'4" 217 lbs. - A huge RB, Latimer may not see much of the field however. His PT is going to be measured by the recruitment of ESPN 150 RB Erik Salyer, who VT holds a narrow lead over Auburn on.
