Virginia Tech Football Fall Camp Report

There is early optimism for this young Hokies team

John Schneider - SB Nation

Virginia Tech fall camp is in full swing, and there is plenty to be excited about. Saturday saw players in pads for the first time, and coach Justin Fuente has had a couple of pressers. It’s always really difficult to gauge his feelings on the team, especially this early, but some key comments does lend one to have some confidence heading into the 2017 campaign.

The Hokies look visibly bigger on the lines this year. Virginia Tech has been releasing heights and weights for players, and it seems coach Ben Hilgart and crew are serious about beefing up the 2017 Hokies. We learned some interesting nuggets about a very young football team from Fuente during the 8/5 media session. Fuente had the highest of praises for safety, Terrell Edmunds.

“I’ve never had a player like Terrell.”-Coach Justin Fuente

That’s pretty tall stuff. He made sure to “not take anything away from Tremaine”, but wow. Fuente also addressed any possible freshman to see the field in 2017. He mentioned Devon Hunter DB, Jalen Holston RB, and Dalton Keene TE, by name, but indicated there were others that could see action as well.
