2012 Football Preview: Tailbacks

One piece of information that came out of the ACC Kickoff is that highly-touted true freshman Trey Edmunds will begin his career at tailback.  Considering the depth issues the Hokies have at that position, this news hardly comes as a surprise.

Since the Edmunds news just recently came out, let’s take advantage of it and begin our preseason coverage of the 2012 Hokies with a preview of the tailbacks.

Let’s break down exactly where the Hokies stand at tailback, with spring practice as our guide.  Note that these heights and weights have not been updated since the spring for Tech’s returning players, and the heights and weights of true freshmen are taken from the time they were recruited.  We anticipate Virginia Tech to update their heights and weights when practice opens in August.
