Hokies signing day: Running backs
Hokies Journal is taking a position-by-position look of Virginia Tech's incoming class on national signing day. Virginia Tech had seemed to shore up its class early, so all prospects listed were among the recruits expected to sign Wednesday with the Hokies. Follow @HokiesJournal on Twitter for any changes or unexpected signings.
Billy Hite, Virginia Tech’s running backs coach, has said that a team can never have enough running backs because of the bruising nature of the position. But the Hokies have one of the most crowded backfields in the country, so that philosophy does not apply to this recruiting class.
Virginia Tech did not receive any running back commitments because, simply, it did not need any. There is a chance that Ryan Williams, who will be a redshirt sophomore in 2010, could play his final season in Blacksburg next fall before leaving early for the NFL. The Hokies also have Darren Evans, who will be a fourth-year junior, as well as rising sophomore David Wilson and rising fourth-year junior Josh Oglesby. All are talented and capable backfield options.
