David Wilson plays football on Sundays. The Hokies running back announced minutes ago he will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft. Wilson is rated as the 22nd overall player and 2nd running back available in the 2012 draft according to ESPN Scouts Inc.
Wilson rushed for 1,709 yards in 2011. That campaign broke Tech's single-season rushing record previously held by Ryan Williams (1,655 '09).
One or more inexperienced players: Tony Gregory (who had surgery on his left ACL yesterday), Michael Holmes, or incoming 2012 freshman J.C. Coleman, Chris Mangus or Drew Harris will try to succeed Wilson at running back this fall.
Best of luck in the NFL DW4. We'll miss your play on the field, and charisma off it, a lot.
