1: Who do you see as the top two running backs this year come fall? Do you see any freshmen or redshirt freshmen making the two-deep on any side of the ball this fall?

Chris Coleman: I certainly think there will be some freshmen and r-freshmen in the two-deep this season.  One of them – Trey Edmunds – I expect to be in the two-deep at running back, along with sophomore J.C. Coleman.  Others will have a shot as well, at various positions.

Kendall Fuller .

Kendall Fuller (Fr.) – Once the true freshman arrives on campus, he’ll be in a position to compete for playing time immediately.  He might even be a starter right away, if nobody else can lock down the starting job at field corner.

Augie Conte (r-Fr.) – Conte is just finishing up an impressive winter strength and conditioning program.  The coaching staff was very impressed with him on the scout team this past season.  He has a great shot to be in the two-deep at offensive tackle this year.

Joshua Stanford (r-Fr.) – I believe Stanford will be one of Tech’s top four receivers this season.  Perhaps even one of their top two receivers.

Joel Caleb (r-Fr.) – I don’t think Caleb will begin the spring in the two-deep, but those positions are wide open.  He has the size and athletic ability to earn a spot.

Deon Clarke (r-Fr.) – Clarke is almost a shoo-in to make the two-deep at backer.  Look for him to play a lot on special teams this season.

Nigel Williams (r-Fr.) – Don’t rule out Williams taking a spot in the two-deep at defensive tackle.  He’s going to be a very good lineman for the Hokies before it’s all
