Now that spring practice is over, it’s time for the spring update to our top prospects list.

As a reminder, players who have played over 100 snaps on offense and defense are no longer eligible. For example, even though Yosuah Nijman, Mook Reynolds and Adonis Alexander are only true sophomores, they aren’t eligible because they played 100+ snaps in 2015. On the other hand, true sophomore Tremaine Edmunds is eligible because he didn’t get that kind of playing time. (Note: total snaps aren’t available for the bowl game, so I’m estimating. Edmunds is borderline, but we’re going to include him anyway since he didn’t play nearly as much as Nijman, Reynolds and Alexander.)

Also, GMSA Hokie and I came to an agreement to include JUCO prospects. Even though they are a bit older, they still have never played snaps against FBS competition.

We’ll start out with GMSA Hokie’s lists…
