Virginia Tech announces 2011 football recruiting class

BLACKSBURG, VA (WWBT) - Five prep All-Americans highlight a football recruiting class composed of 20 student-athletes, as announced by Virginia Tech on Wednesday.

"We're really pleased with this class," head coach Frank Beamer said.

"It's a solid, good class with a lot of players who have great potential. In a year that we had limited scholarships, I'm happy we were able to add some quality recruits late in the process. We look forward to getting these guys on campus and to begin working with them."
