Interesting class, that was by all accounts very good, and about 1 more chip baller(s) away from being extremely good, maybe even outright great. Or a 20’something ranked national recruiting football class basically no matter where you look.
Nevertheless there is some rather alluring star-power in this rather top-heavy (pun intended, see: pic) on O&M paper 2015 Virginia Tech football recruiting class. (training-room, VT.edu, off-field and Coach God all willing)
So who is your most intriguing prospect of the 2015 recruiting class?
Who is your Alpha?
- It’s Settle(d). As in all-everything Dt Tim Settle. 6’4” 344 lbs. of ESPN, Rivals, Scout, 247, MaxPreps and basically everyone else, can’t all be ‘rong! This kid is good, this kid is a threat to start; as in start right away and possibly start for 3-4 years. (depending upon when he leaves). Tim almost has an impoverished man’s Vince Wilfork look-n-feel to him. Could give coach Wiles his first true S.e.c. monsta sized pure Ng in years. 37 solo TFL last year, with a 6oo lb. back-squat and a 5.25 forty … at this size, does not suck!
- 6-6 2o9 lb. Qb Dwayne Lawson: Has every attribute you could possibly want in a big time dual-threat vertical and horizontal stretch Pivot; and he truly can do it all. Lawson just needs some mechanical refinement(s) or passing game fine-tuning from great Scot, some Gentrification, and a steak; or three. The body is willing, just ask his massive wingspan on a Klitschko scale too boot. Ditto his fast-forward or high velocity throws, even with the “ok” symbol on his release.
- Tb DeShawn McCLease: a 5’8” 177 lb. 4.4o best forty mighty-mite in the finest Mike Imoh and/or J.C. Coleman sense of the word. Has more pure speed than Imoh, has more moves than J.C.C. Will have the best Rb mits for pass catching the instant he sets foot on campus. Prolly the best Tb hands since the days of V.Hebron. Seems to be experiencing a post signing day bear-market –which is always a good sign. A 37” vertical with 36 yards in the medicine ball throw for a kid this size is jus’ plum crazy!
- Other??? (Hill, Clark, Burke, Mook, Nijam, or even a total sleeper pick?)
ESPN=25th, Rivals=24th, 247 sports=29th, b.street=23rd (like the star power here, see potentially 2 sleepers as well)
