Jerod Evans

Justin Fuente announced on Thursday that r-junior Jerod Evans will start at quarterback in Virginia Tech’s season opener against Liberty.

Jerod Evans emerges from three-way battle

Evans, a junior college transfer from Texas, has been locked in a tight battle with Brenden Motley and Joshua Jackson for the starting position.  He was personally recruited to Virginia Tech by Fuente within weeks of Fuente’s hiring.  Many recruiting analysts rated him the #1 JUCO quarterback in the country for the 2016 recruiting class.

Fuente noted that he and quarterbacks coach Brad Cornelsen have not settled on a backup as of yet.  They will continue to develop both r-senior Brenden Motley and true freshman Joshua Jackson.

TSL will have more on this announcement later tonight.

  1. Agree on no surprise here, but really, there you go, it’s decided, it’s Evans job to loose, even an “OK” Liberty game gets him through to Bristol and really the rest of the season even if he has a tough Tennessee game.

    OK, we’re set, let’s go.

  2. Unless JJ is head and shoulders above Motley or Evans gets hurt Motley should be the backup. Don’t burn a redshirt for a handful of snaps.
