Rising r-sophomore wide receiver Kevin Asante is no longer a member of the football program. This news was revealed on Sunday evening at the ACC Football Kickoff in Greensboro, NC.
Asante played in 10 games as a r-freshman last season, and made one start. He caught two passes for a total of 18 yards. He was listed #2 on the depth chart at flanker coming out of spring practice. His absence will open the door for playing time to other players.
Here’s now Tech’s depth chart looked at both wide receiver spots coming out of the spring (with Asante not included).
Tech also now has an extra scholarship available. The Hokies could elect to give it to a walkon receiver who will see playing time, such as Charley Meyer or Willie Byrn.
