VT Greenberg Recruit Tracker

Comprehensive look at how all the recruits from the Seth Greenberg era, starting back in 2003^, have done at VT.  It notes how they did at Tech, who transferred, and how they did/are doing at their new school.  (^ 2 of those 3 recruits were actually nabbed by ricky stokes but Seth talked them into still coming.)

Sad note: I noticed 2005 signee Hyman Taylor, who never played at VT, was shot and killed back in 2010.

Guys who never enrolled, transferred, or were kicked out of school are in italics.
