Hokie Tracks took a backseat during spring practice, but it's back now. For anyone new here, this is a semi-regular feature summarizing relevant Virginia Tech, ACC and college football news as it piles up. It's not timely, but hopefully it will serve as discussion starter.
National Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com Mike Farrell dropped some very good information in a live chat Thursday. He believes Deon Newsome, "best fits on offense where he can be a slot receiver, scat back and also potential special teams return guy." He notes with regards to Jonathan Allen that the, "Hokies have turned up the heat and he is responding a bit". Last month Allen named Florida and Alabama his finalists, but now he's considering Florida, Alabama, Virginia Tech, Penn State and Ohio State. Farrell also believes Wyatt Teller will stay in-state, and Tech has 50-50 chance to land him.
