As reported by Hokies long snapper Collin Carroll, Nick Acree is now an offensive lineman.
Here's what defensive line coach Charley Wiles had to say last week about Acree to Kyle Tucker.
Not ready. Not reliable enough, not a consistent enough performer. Not a very instinctive football player right now. Kind of a robot. Tries to apply everything you’re saying literally. I mean, play a little bit. Everything isn't going to work exactly like we say it. We’re trying to coach you, but there comes a point where you've got to play. Right now, coming out of spring and what I saw today ... I don’t see a guy who's instinctive enough right now. If we can get two years out of Nick somewhere through this process, I would call it a win.
As of right now, that two years won't be at defensive tackle.
