Virginia Tech didn't get to play its 2012 spring game on Saturday as planned, thanks to a storm system that rolled through Blacksburg. But the parade of coveted recruits in town to see it didn't seem to mind, and the Hokies had a superb weekend on the recruiting front, locking up five verbal commitments from visiting prospects in the class of 2013, and their first from the class of 2014.
The top prize was the verbal commitment of Bucky Hodges, a 6'5", 225-pound dual-threat quarterback who could very well be the heir apparent to the similarly-statured Logan Thomas. Rivals lists Hodges as the No. 13 quarterback in the class of 2013.
The Hokies also received pledges from defensive back Charles Clark, offensive linemen Braxton Pfaff and Parker Osterloh, as well as linebacker Andrew Motu'apuaka, all Virginia natives and high school seniors-to-be. The Hokies got an additional verbal commitment from 2014 defensive end Vincent Mihota.
