Virginia Tech adds six to roster

By staff

Virginia Tech will welcome six scholarship players to the program when classes begin on Jan. 19, the school announced today. Two players originally signed with Tech last February and deferred their enrollment, two went to prep school for a semester, and two have graduated high school early. All six have signed their offers of admission and are now enrolled.

Kory Gough, Duan Perez-Means and Theron Norman all signed with Tech last year. Gough took a grayshirt, while Perez-Means came to Tech in the fall, but left to have surgery on his shoulder and also deferred his enrollment. Norman and Laurence Gibson went to Hargrave in the fall while Chase Williams and Ricardo Young graduated high school a semester early.

Spring practice for the Hokies begins on March 31, and the spring game is at 2 p.m. on April 24.
