Virginia Tech football: Where are the Hokies in USA TODAY’s post-spring rankings?

How good will the Virginia Tech Hokies be in 2024? That’s a question being asked by many around college football. Many believe the return of a strong, competitive Virginia Tech football program is good for the game.

There’s a lot to like about the Hokies. Tech returns 20 starters in 2024, which is remarkable in the current landscape of the game. In the era of the transfer portal and NIL, it’s hard to retain top talent for any program. Essentially, other schools can recruit your players. It’s illegal, but it happens, and you can’t prove it. But Virginia Tech and head coach Brent Pry weathered the storm and retained everyone it wanted to keep.
