The spring transfer portal opens today and expect some members of the Virginia Tech football players to throw their name in there. Just who remains to be seen, but expect some to test the waters.

This is a short window to enter, just 15 days, however, players don't have to commit in that time frame, they can commit after. Following Saturday's Spring Game, head coach Brent Pry was happy with where his team is now than at this point last season, but things can change in a heartbeat with the transfer portal.

It would be very surprising if someone key entered it, but Pry said that despite Pop Watson and Dylan Wittke battling for the No. 2 spot behind Kyron Drones, that might be a position that they look to add from the portal.

"We’re having those discussions now. We’ve obviously got some guys in mind that we’ll speak with. We’ll see where it goes. It’s got to be the right group. When you look at Dylan and Pop, and you say ‘could one of them be ready by September?’ Maybe. But do you want to take that risk? That’s something (we’ll consider) when we’re watching this film. That’s why today was so important for those guys."

That seemed like an odd quote at the time, but it just shows what coaches are doing this time of year, no matter how good their roster is, they are keeping an eye on things with the transfer portal. In the big picture, another offensive lineman might be another area that needs to be addressed by the Hokies.

The transfer portal has become big in college sports and it s=would not be shocking to see some members of Virginia Tech enter it, but it also wouldn't be surprising if no one did. In this day and age, expect someone to enter at some point.
