Two more Hokies have entered the transfer portal, per 247Sports: safety/sam linebacker Jalen Hoyle and defensive end Kyree Moyston.

A 6-foot, 185-pound safety from New Jersey who signed in 2021, Hoyle appeared in 12 games for the Hokies, primarily on special teams, making 10 tackles. He moved from safety to sam linebacker in the spring, backing up Keonta Jenkins.

Though he was nominally the backup sam by the end of spring, the Hokies figure to use Derrick Canteen frequently as a nickelback in the slot situationally.

Moyston, a 6-foot-4, 238-pound defensive end, is a more recent signee, joining the Hokies in 2022 out of Norfolk. He made a half tackle in only four games last year, preserving his redshirt. He and fellow 2022 signee Keyshawn Burgos were among those vying for a backup end spot by the end of spring.

Their departures unofficially put Virginia Tech at 84 scholarships, giving the Hokies room to add players from the transfer portal.

  1. He’s no Coach Prime but I like our Coach Early Bird! Roll portal roll! Do your thing Mr. Portal.

  2. Best of luck to these two and thanks for all the hard work most of us don’t see on a daily basis competing for a spot with no guarantee of ever seeing the field.

  3. The Transfer Portal works both ways – as it should – unless the NCAA makes a mess of it – like they do everything else..

        1. There is plenty of truth to the statement over time, but in this case the portal will work exactly as it should. These two Hokies saw/were explained their future at VT and decided to try the portal waters. We thank them for being Hokies and wish them success on their journey.

        2. But it’s provocative>>>>
          The NCAA wants to change the rules on the second transfer for a player. They will establish a set of criteria that the player has to meet – before they’re allowed to go to a third school. IF the NCAA is involved in a decision – it’s usually wrong – or takes forever – or…

          BTW – the rules on stopping the clock after first downs – works – as it gives the refs a chance to spot the ball in an organized fashion. It’ll look like a three-ring circus at some games. That’s because it already does.
