According to Doug Doughty of The Roanoke Times, Virginia Tech is welcoming two new transfers into the football program: place kicker Remington Hinshaw and defensive end Wade Hansen.

Doughty’s article can be found by clicking here.

Hinshaw is originally from Roanoke, VA where he played for Patrick Henry High School.  He went 15-of-22 on his field goal attempts last season for the Richmond Spiders.  Hinshaw will have to sit out this season, and he will be a r-junior in 2014.  Cody Journell is a senior this year, so Hinshaw will have an opportunity to challenge for the starting job as soon as he is eligible.

Wade Hansen has played Division III football for the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Engineers over the past two seasons.  He was the teams Rookie of the Year in 2011.  In 2012, he posted 9.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks in eight games.

Hansen will sit out this season, and will be a r-junior in 2014.  He is listed at 6-5, 240 on the Rensselaer website.  The Hokies lose three senior defensive ends following the 2013 season: James Gayle, JR Collins and Tyrel Wilson.

  1. Hansen reminds me a lot of Engleberger.

    Any chance he would play OT – he seems to have a lot of the necessary attributes?

  2. I don’t recall these kind of transfers in the past. Has it occurred before?
    What was the process for this to happen with these players?
    Did VT contact/recruit them or was this started by the players?

  3. I know quality of opponent is a factor but Hanson’s tape looks great! Welcome to Hanson and Hinshaw. Go Hokies!

  4. Pretty good stats for 8 games, usually d3 only plays 9-10 reg season games, wonder if he missed a couple due to injury

  5. RPI is one of the best engineering schools in the country and a tough school to get into- he must be a very intelligent man. Tech looks like a great fit for this guy…

  6. It seems like Hinshaw has been a diehard VT fan since he was a kid. From Doughty’s article it sounded like he would’ve came to VT if he had an offer, but I guess we never offered him?

    1. There is a long list of guys playing Div III who would come to VT if we offerered even a preferred walk-on slot. I wonder how big he was as a senior?

      Chris: Any info about his recruiting/ranking out of HS?

      1. No, players that drop to Division 3 rarely ever make the Rivals database, so there is no info about them.
