BLACKSBURG, Va. — Josh Jackson went into his afternoon meeting with Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente and offensive coordinator Brad Cornelsen thinking it was just a regular Monday.
“Looking back over his development, I’ve just been pleased with his consistency, his demeanor, his ability to process information,” Fuente said.
Hooker, a true freshman from Greensboro Dudley who had an impressive spring game, is still in that mix but could be looking at a redshirt year.
The decision comes well before last season’s, when Jerod Evans was announced as the Hokies’ starter over Brenden Motley and Jackson on Aug. 25, a little over a week before the season opener.
“I think those guys know that coach Fuente understands that position and that was part of the draw for all of them to come,” Cornelsen said.
