The Hokies have a tremendous amount of youth and inexperience at wide
receiver. Only one player in the current three deep at wideout has played in a
college game. It’s possible that as many as three true freshmen could play at
wideout this year. Things are a lot better at tight end, where the Hokies
actually have more players than they need this year.

Here is a look at our current depth chart. It doesn’t exactly match up with
the official depth chart. We try to base ours on who we think will play, and who
will redshirt. I think three true freshmen have a chance to see playing time for
Tech this year at wideout, and those three are listed on the depth chart below.
