VMI announces 2014 football signees


VMI head coach Sparky Woods today announced the signings of the 2014 football recruiting class. The group features 14 signees including nine that are defensive players. Eight come from the state of Virginia, and six from out-of-state. Six states are represented in this year’s signing day class.

vmi_logo“I’m real excited about our class,”said Woods. “It’s defensive heavy, but with some offensive guys coming in including players at quarterback and left tackle. Defensively, we also have cover guys and players who can run on defense. Each year we have tried to strengthen our secondary with the game getting so spread out and that also includes the outside backers who get around the ball on the perimeter. Offensively, you always want to get a quarterback and add a player makeror two who can have an impact on special teams.”

The following signees are members of the 2014 VMI Football recruiting class. The info below includes name, position, height, weight, high school, and hometown. Further capsule information on each signee follows, and video highlights of the signees will be posted on ‘Roo Tube, VMI’s athletic multimedia player located at www.vmikeydets.com, and linked to this article.
