VT Insider: What went wrong and what went right at the Blacksburg Bash

One of Virginia Tech’s key recruiting stretches before their focus shifts almost entirely on prep work for the 2017 campaign came at the Blacksburg Bash in late July. The event yielded mixed results with disappointment on some that didn’t show as well as encouragement for the fan base and coaching staff through those that did attend.

A 6-foot-2, 180-pound defender who previously attended Carroll in Washington, D.C., Waller became the 19th commitment in the Class of 2018 for the Hokies, who have assembled a wealth of talent in the secondary.
