After the Virginia Tech football team completed their spring practices and Spring Game on April 13, head coach Brent Pry said that the Hokies would be looking to add a quarterback in the transfer portal for the 2024 season.

That became a priority shortly after his comment when Tyler Wittke, who was beaten out for the backup role behind Kyron Drones by Pop Watson in the Spring Game, entered the transfer portal and soon after entering, he committed to the University of Minnesota. His departure left Pry and offensive coordinator Tyler Bowen with just three signal callers under scholarship for the fall with Drones, Watson, and incoming freshman Davi Belfort. 

Pry scored a big transfer portal win last week when UCLA transfer Collin Schlee committed to the Hokies for his final season of eligibility this upcoming fall. It may not seem like a big pickup, however, if there is one thing we learned last season, it’s that the backup QB spot is huge. Grant Wells went down in Week 2 against Purdue and Drones, a Baylor transfer, took over and led the Hokies to a 6-6 finish and a Military Bowl berth. Virginia Tech set themselves up for a strong offseason with a 41-20 bowl win over Tulane.

Now that spring practices are over and Schlee has been added, here are three reasons to be very excited for the Hokies quarterback room heading into the fall.
