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

Gregory, 6-0, 192, played tailback for Fork Union Military Academy this past
year. Splitting time with other gifted runners, he ran for approximately 800
yards and seven touchdowns. Gregory has been timed at a sub 4.4 in the 40 yard
dash.

Though he played tailback at Fork Union – and he could begin his career at
that position at Virginia Tech – Gregory is expected to eventually settle in the
defensive secondary.

Barber is a 5-11, 190 wide receiver prospect from Edison High School in
Alexandria, VA. He is the brother of former Virginia Tech standout safety Willie
Pile. Barber played quarterback as a senior, but as a junior in 2006 he made 54
catches for 1,034 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Hylton High School tight end Eric Martin will also be enrolling this
semester. Listed at 6-3, 240 coming out of high school, Martin could eventually
end up playing on the offensive line for the Hokies, though he’ll likely start
out at tight end.

A fourth Virginia Tech recruit, wide receiver D.J. Coles, was hoping to
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.
