Goode was a defensive tackle from Washington, DC who signed with the Hokies in February. A talented player, Goode was expected to contend for playing time as a true freshman this season. He enrolled for the second summer session in July, but quickly determined that he wanted to transfer. He battled weight issues throughout his recruitment, and he was listed at 6-0, 331 on Virginia Tech’s online roster.
We’ll have more on this situation in a TSL Pass article tomorrow.
