Marshall linebacker C.J. McCray, who has been in the transfer portal since February 25th, announced on Twitter this morning that he will transfer to Virginia Tech.
McCray, listed at 6-3, 215 coming out of Mallard Creek High School in Charlotte, North Carolina, is an outside linebacker who is expected to compete at the Backer spot, where Alan Tisdale currently holds the top spot on the depth chart. As a high schooler, McCray was a non-qualifier and was lightly recruited, with interest from Liberty, Coastal Carolina, North Carolina Central, and Marshall, where he eventually enrolled.
As a non-qualifier, McCray sat out the 2020 season and did not participate in any games. He is not listed on Marshall’s 2020 football roster.
McCray is enrolled at Marshall for the spring semester, per 247Sports.com, and will enroll at Virginia Tech in the summer.
