Virginia Tech’s initial depth chart was released on Monday morning, and for the most part it offered little in the way of surprise.  Here are my thoughts about the depth chart across each position on both sides of the ball.

Quarterback

1: Ryan Willis (6-4, 220, r-Sr.)
2: Hendon Hooker (6-4, 228, r-So.)

Though Tech doesn’t list a third quarterback on their official depth chart, we know that it’s Quincy Patterson.  This has been the expected depth chart since fall practice began, so there’s really nothing new to discuss here.

Running Back

1: Deshawn McClease (5-9, 190, r-Jr.) OR Jalen Holston (5-11, 218, Jr.)
3: Keshawn King (5-11, 182, Fr.)

It’s no big surprise that McClease and Holston are listed in a tie atop the depth chart, and it’s also no surprise that King is listed as the third option.  This has been expected since the first few reports began leaking out of camp in early August.
