Football Recruiting 2013: Virginia Tech Dominates, But Ohio State And Notre Dame Make Gains

This weekend's round of spring games wasn't quite the commitments bonanza we've seen in previous spring game en masse weekends, at least for teams besides the Virginia Tech Hokies. Despite not even being able to play their spring game due to inclement weather, VPI picked up commitments from quarterback Bucky Hodges, defensive back Charles Clark, offensive lineman Parker Osterloh, offensive lineman Braxton Pfaff and linebacker Andrew Motu'apuaka.

Hodges is rated a four-star by most services, while the others mostly get three-star ratings. The Hokies also reportedly got their first 2014 commit, Fredricksburg defensive end Vincent Mihota. All six hail from Virginia.

Still, Frank Beamer didn't hog all of the recruits.

The West Virginia Mountaineers had a big day of their own, adding New Jersey offensive lineman Marcell Lazard and Pennsylvania running back DeShawn Coleman. Lazard is a consensus three-star with a lengthy offer sheet, while Coleman is an up-and-comer.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish add near-consensus four-star offensive lineman John Montelus of Massachusetts, while the Ohio St. Buckeyes picked up consensus four-star outside linebacker Alex Anzalone from Pennsylvania. Each school now has 11 commitments for 2013.

In ACC and soon-to-be ACC recruiting, the Maryland Terrapins picked up Baltimore three-star dual-threat quarterback Shane Cockerille, and the Pittsburgh Panthers added versatile curiosity Shakir Soto of Pennsylvania.
