Virginia Tech football: Multiple Hokies named in top 100 players’ list for 2024

The Virginia Tech Hokies have plenty of offensive talent returning in 2024. Everyone knows about quarterback Kyron Drones, running back Bhayshul Tuten and wide receivers Ali Jennings, Quan Felton and Jaylin Lane. But Virginia Tech has an equally impressive list of returning starters on defense.

On3 recently previewed the 2024 college football season by naming its version of the top 100 players in college football. Three Virginia Tech players made the list — and surprisingly, none are on offense.

Cornerback Dorian Strong led the way at No. 45. The fifth-year cornerback had a career year in 2023, starting all 13 games and establishing career-highs in tackles, passes defended and interceptions.
