Following Saturday's annual Spring Game at Lane Stadium, Virginia Tech football players met with the media to discuss a number of topics. Several key members of the 2024 roster spoke, including defensive back Mansoor Delane.

It was a big weekend for the Delane family as not only were they in town for Mansoor's Spring Game, but his little brother, five-star safety Faheem, was also in Blacksburg for an official visit. Following the game, the older brother spoke and he made one comment that should be music to Hokies' fans ears.

"The rebuilding theory and all that is over. We want to win now.

Mansoor, who in December announced that he was returning for the 2024 season along with Dorian Strong, said what a lot of Virginia Tech fans have been thinking over the last five months and really since the Hokies rolled over in-state rival Virginia, 55-17, on Thanksgiving Weekend to become bowl-eligible. Virginia Tech then put an exclamation point of the season with a 41-20 Military Bowl win over a ranked Tulane team in late December.

Everyone wants to win and win now, but if there is one ACC team that has set itself up to win as soon as next fall, it's Virginia Tech. This will be Year 3 of the Brent Pry-era in Blacksburg and to say that he has things rolling right now would be a major understatement. Along with Delane and Strong, there was a lot of retainment from last season's team on both sides of the ball. Add in some key transfers on the defensive side of the ball, along with offensive lineman Montavious Cunningham, the Hokies will enter the fall with a deep depth chart in a lot of areas.

Virginia Tech have been thinking that the rebuild is over and it's time to win and win now, but Mansoor Delane confirmed what fans have been thinking, the 2024 Virginia Tech Hokies are in serious win-mode now and in the future under Pry's leadership.
