Jerod Evans Named As Starter Against Liberty

No surprises here, but expect more than one QB to see action.

There are too many whispers in training camp.  Joshua Jackson made headlines last week when he was getting reps with the ones.  Today, Justin Fuente made his decision official.   Jerod Evans will take the first snap in Virginia Tech's first game against Liberty.  Andy Bitter, of the Roanoke Times, broke the news today.  The Hokies square off against Liberty in the home opener.  Hopefully, the Hokies will be able to field test all the quarterbacks in this matchup.  Getting the starting nod is huge for Evans, and gives him more than a full week to work with the ones.

No word yet on the backup, so that battle is still ongoing. The Hokies should be able to give all the QBs looks against a suspect Liberty defense. Congratulations to Jerod Evans, and LET'S GO HOKIES!!!
