Chris Coleman: From what I can tell, the following freshmen have played…

Defensive back Devon Hunter
Running back Jalen Holston
Wide receiver Sean Savoy
Wide receiver Hezekiah Grimsley
Linebacker Rayshard Ashby
Defensive back Bryce Watts
H-back Dalton Keene
Linebacker Dylan Rivers
Wide receiver Kalil Pimpleton
Punter Oscar Bradburn

That’s a lot of true-freshmen on the field in one year.  Some of them are playing huge roles, such as Sean Savoy and Dalton Keene.  Others are special teams players, such as Rayshard Ashby and Dylan Rivers. 

For what it’s worth, HokieSports.com incorrectly listed Terius Wheatley as having played in a game this year.  They should have listed Dylan Rivers instead.  They both wear No. 44.  Rivers was on the kickoff team in the second half for the first time, thus burning his redshirt.

True freshmen who have not played are…

Quarterback Hendon Hooker
Tight end Drake Deluliis
Wide receiver Caleb Farley (injury)
Defensive end Zion DeBose
Defensive back Devante Smith
Linebacker Rico Kearney
Linebacker Jaylen Griffin
Running back Terius Wheatley
Defensive end TyJuan Garbutt
Offensive lineman Aiden Brown
