Raymon Minor, who had decided to leave Virginia Tech roughly two weeks ago, has rejoined Virginia Tech football as a walk-on.
Head Coach Justin Fuente, who confirmed Minor’s decision to come back to the team on Twitter, told the media on Aug. 11 that Minor had decided to leave the program and transfer.
“We support him. I want him to be happy and successful,” Fuente said of Minor’s decision to transfer on Aug. 11. “This is a lot of work and he put in a lot of work. He worked really hard. We support him to go and have a better chance to get on the field in a bigger role or whatever it is that he’s looking for. We fully support him and wish him the best and we’re willing to help him in any way.”
Minor, a redshirt-sophomore at linebacker who was on scholarship before leaving the program, played just eight games last season for Virginia Tech, mostly on special teams. With linebacker depth a serious question for the Hokies on defense, Minor does have a significant chance for playing time this season as a bench player.
