Three new players will be enrolling at Virginia Tech for the spring semester.
Class of 2008 members Ben
Gregory and Eric
Martin will be enrolling in school next week, and they will go through

Hylton High School tight end Eric Martin will also be enrolling this

enroll in January. However, the NCAA Clearinghouse likely won’t have a chance to
review his qualification status until after the semester begins. As a result,
Coles will be looking to enroll in June.
