Decisions Coming for Tech Juniors

Several Virginia Tech juniors have a decision to make.  Logan Thomas , James Gayle and Antone Exum all sent their papers in to the NFL so they could get a better idea where they would be selected in the 2013 NFL Draft.  The papers have been returned, but none of those players have made an announcement either way.

Virginia Tech opens the 2013 season with the Alabama Crimson Tide.  As you know, Alabama has won the last two National Championships, and three of the last four.  I think it’s safe to say that the Hokies will need every man they can get for that game, and that especially includes the three guys we’re talking about today.

Alabama is beatable.  Certainly Texas A&M proved that, and Georgia nearly proved it again in the SEC Championship Game.  However, I highly doubt the Hokies would have a chance to pull the upset without Thomas, Gayle and Exum

Of course, this isn’t about the Alabama game.  This is about three guys that need to make the best decision for themselves.  I’m of the opinion that the best decision for themselves is to return to Virginia Tech for the 2013 season.
