  1. Keve was smart to explore his options, but that news made my week! And maybe he wanted to experience “THE CASSELL” rocking at full capacity!! Can’t wait. GO HOKIES!!!!!!

  2. I have lost track. Didn’t Bede say he was returning? Thought he would back-up and mentor Storm.

  3. This will now make the Hokies and force to be reckoned with …likely our best team in many years!

  4. A wise decision that must have been a heartbreaking realization. It shows he has his head in the right place and has some very good folks giving him advice.

  5. Awesome news!!! Hopefully, another year of college ball will improve his chances of playing in the pros.

  6. Thank you Keve… Top 5 in the ACC come November… Great, Great, great news!

    GO HOKIES!!!

  7. Almost feel badly he didn’t make it although that was certainly a long shot. He’s been a great story here, Wasn’t really all that much at Wofford, wasn’t going to be brought along by MY, he wrote a letter asking to go with him and then, somehow, somewhere he used his sitting out year to transform himself into a slippery post up guy like VT hasn’t had in a long time. Good to see you back.
