Malachi Thomas: The Redshirt Situation
I’ve been running with the PFF numbers for tracking redshirts this year, and PFF lists Malachi Thomas as having appeared in five games this season. However, HokieSports.com lists him as only having played in four. According to PFF, he got two snaps on the kickoff team against UNC, but HokieSports.com does not list him as having participated in that game. If HokieSports.com is correct, then Thomas is still eligible to redshirt if he doesn’t play any more this season. If that’s the case, then the coaching staff has a decision to make this week, not last week as I originally thought.
