According to the latest interview with Bud Foster on Hokiesports.com, Vince Mihota will get reps inside to back up Luther Maddy as the No. 2, three-technique defensive tackle.
"We're also going to probably look at Vinny Mihota some inside," Foster said in the interview while discussing depth along the defensive line.
Foster's initial stream of consciousness suggested that this is a short term move, necessitated by "class conflicts" with guys who may miss some practice time (I am guessing that would be Wade Hansen). He also said it gives the Hokie defensive staff an opportunity to get Mihota more reps and time on the field for evaluation.
Interestingly though, Foster finished the thought with, "He's going to grow into that [defensive tackle] position when it's all said and done."
