National Signing Day 2014: Grade and Analysis for Virginia Tech

After a 6-6 campaign in 2012, Frank Beamer and the Virginia Tech Hokies improved slightly in 2013, enough for a Sun Bowl appearance but not quite to the level that they had hoped to be.

On Wednesday for National Signing Day, Beamer and the Hokies took a good step in the right direction by bringing in some stud four-star recruits and a host of three-stars. Here’s a look at the Hokies 2014 signing class, with a grade:
