Seven early enrollees will join Virginia Tech when the team meets Monday afternoon to begin preparing for the 2013 season. The school announced the enrollment of: defensive back Brandon Facyson, offensive lineman Parker Osterloh and quarterback Carlis Parker, along with 2012 signees Woody Baron, Seth Dooley and Jerome Wright. Additionally, Fork Union prepster Jonathan McLaughlin, who gave a verbal comitment to the Hokies in December, joins the squad. All seven begin classes Tuesday.

From the release:
Baron and Dooley both signed with Tech last February and deferred their enrollments to this semester. Wright also signed with Tech in 2012, but went to Fork Union Military Academy for a semester.
Facyson is from Newnan, Ga., and played at Northgate High. He is ranked as the No. 25 cornerback in the country and the No. 39 player in the state by ESPN Recruiting Nation. Osterloh is an offensive tackle from Williamsburg’s Warhill High. He is rated as the No. 45 offensive tackle in the country by 247Sports. Parker is a quarterback from Statesville, N.C., who is listed as the No. 17 dual-threat quarterback in the country and the No. 21 prospect in North Carolina by Rivals.
McLaughlin is the only new name to Tech fans as he committed to the Hokies just last month after signing with East Carolina coming out of high school. After a semester at Fork Union, the offensive lineman from Mauldin, S.C., chose Virginia Tech. He is ranked the No. 27 prep player in the country, the No. 3 prep offensive tackle and the No. 19 prep player in Virginia by 247Sports.
Because Facyson, McLaughlin, Osterloh and Parker are enrolling in January, none will sign a National Letter of Intent. Baron, Dooley and Wright’s NLIs from 2012 were still binding. Signing Day is Wednesday, Feb. 6 this year.
