It’s time for the yearly Top Prospects list, which is one of my favorite articles to put together each year. GMSAHokie and I used to do them twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, but we don’t get to see guys scrimmage these days, which makes ranking them a bit more difficult. We’ve fallen back to a once-a-year schedule, and in fact we haven’t updated our list since the spring of 2017. A lot has changed since then.
To refresh your memory, eligible players for our list are redshirt sophomores or younger who have played fewer than 100 offensive or defensive snaps. These days we have to estimate how many snaps a player has played, because they don’t keep those numbers on HokieSports.com anymore. For some guys, it is easy. For example, we definitely know that Devon Hunter didn’t play 100 snaps. For other guys, it’s not as easy. I don’t think Phil Patterson played 100 snaps, but considering he caught nine passes and was targeted 15 times, it’s possible. I’m leaning towards less than 100 snaps, though.
JUCO players who just enrolled are also eligible. Jerod Evans...
