Freshman wide receiver Kalil Pimpleton has left Virginia Tech football, and plans to transfer from the university following the fall semester, according to Andy Bitter of the Roanoke Times.
Pimpleton, who enrolled early at Virginia Tech, has been used in a limited fashion this season despite the Hokies’ lack of depth at wide receiver. The 5-foot-8, 170-pound wide receiver played quarterback and running back in high school, and has worked on transitioning to the receiver position since enrolling. He’s played in four games this season, totaling just one rush for four yards. Last week, Pimpleton served as the scout team quarterback for the Hokies, mimicking Georgia Tech’s TaQuon Marshall.
Pimpleton is the first member of Virginia Tech’s Class of 2017 to leave the program. He was a 3-star recruit from Muskegon, Mich. His only other reported offer coming out of high school was Eastern Michigan.
