The Early Signing Period kicks off on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, providing a three-day window for prospective student-athletes in the 2023 recruiting class to sign their National Letters of Intent. The binding agreement will lock in each commitment and result in their status moving to signee in the 247Sports Database.

Virginia Tech’s 2023 Recruiting Class will finalize in status based on the recruits that officially put pen to paper. In a year where the NCAA Transfer Portal and Coaching Carousel have reached an apex of uncertainty, the Early Signing Day will bring with it twists and turns of epic proportions. Stay tuned to VTScoop to stay up to date on all the hysteria of the first installment of Signing Day.

If players don’t sign by Friday evening, the next opportunity to enter a binding agreement with the program of their choosing comes on the first Wednesday in February — Wednesday, February 1, 2023 – the traditional National Signing Day.

Virginia Tech is expected to sign the majority of its 2023 recruiting class on Wednesday morning.

Stay up to date below as we update the signatures that come in for Virginia Tech throughout the day.
