When Justin Fuente was hired by Virginia Tech last November, it was clear that one area the Hokies were looking to upgrade was the passing game. In his first full recruiting cycle in Blacksburg, the new head coach has added plenty of athletic pass-catchers who may help the program achieve that goal in the future.
The Virginia Tech staff landed another one of those players on Friday when 2017 wide receiver Hezekiah Grimsley picked the Hokies.
Grimsley announced the news via social media.

A native of Williamsburg, Virginia, the rising senior is the fourth in-state pickup for the Hokies this recruiting cycle. According to the Hampton Roads Daily Press, the 6-0, 170-pound prospect had 38 receptions for 1,065 yards and 13 touchdowns as a junior at Lafayette High School in 2015.
Grimsley also held offers from ECU, Iowa State, Marshall, Maryland, Syracuse and others. He was rated the No. 19 player in his class from the state of Virginia, and he’s now one of several versatile offensive players committed to the Hokies.
Virginia Tech has commitments from a variety of 2017 players who could fit in at multiple positions on the offense.
