Instead of stressing out or overanalyzing about who lost or gained weight and what it meant. I decided to look through the vast platoon of walk on players added to the roster.
I had totally forgotten about CJ Scott out of Bishop Catholic Sullivan. If I remember correctly that is Coach Chris Scott's son. For those who don't know - Coach Scott was the Bishop Catholic Sullivan HC for the last three years and just left there to take the HC position at Oscar Smith in VA Beach. We've struggled landing a lot of the big dawgs out of Bishop and the tidewater region as a whole. There has always been a perceived issue on here with the relationship between coaches down there and the VT staff. Maybe there was, who knows. If so, this would have to point in the right direction with a pretty influential coach in the area sending his own son to VT as a walk on. On most sites he is listed as an ILB. Who knows? Maybe he takes a big step under the tutelage of Jack Tyler - another former walk on LB. Maybe he is a career scout team kid. Whatever, this could be great for us politically on the recruiting front.
The other one that I saw that intrigued me was Gabe Sesco - a 6'6" 265lb DL out of Graham HS in Bluefield. Most of his highlights on this are as a OT. Maybe he ends up as a DL or SDE, maybe he puts on weight and becomes an OL or maybe he gets swole and becomes a power TE - who knows. I had just read about him a little being that SW VA is my neck of the woods and I'd say he is intriguing as a possible diamond in the rough.
Does anyone else have any insight or intrigue to any of the other walk on roster additions?
