Josh Stanford has left the VT Football program.

Virginia Tech released a press memo stating that WR Josh Stanford has left the football program, permanently. Back in September Josh left the program for personal reasons, but then returned at Coach Frank Beamer's discretion in October. Stanford had 48 career receptions for 713 yards.

The Hokies will also be without WR Deon Newsome for the Military Bowl as he is serving a one-game suspension for violating team rules.

Without these two receivers the Hokies will be traveling to Annapolis with a very thin receiving corp. To combat the lack of depth the offensive coaching staff are giving freshman return-man Greg Stroman reps at receiver as a viable option if freshman playmakers Isaiah Ford and Cam Philips need to come out of Saturday's game.
