In this edition of Virginia Tech News, a 2024 ACC opponent reportedly landed a quarterback in the transfer portal and, Mike Young reaches out to the ACC for clarification and some answers after the Florida State game.
Mike Young reaches out to the ACC about the end of the FSU game
Saturday, Virginia Tech trailed Florida State, 76-74, with 1.2 seconds left in the game when the Seminoles were at the foul line. They made the first shot for a three-point lead but missed the second. Hokies’ guard Hunter Cattoor did not touch the ball, instead letting it bounce so he could get into position for a last-second heave from three-quarters court. The clock started before anyone touched the ball, which it was not supposed to do. Young reached out to the ACC about the issue.
It’s unlikely that Young will hear what he wants to hear, but still, the officials go to the monitor for a lot of things during a game, it’s surprising that they didn’t for this, even though it’s highly unlikely Virginia Tech scored to tie the game.
Miami adds transfer quarterback
The University of Miami has been looking for a quarterback in the transfer portal and it appears that Hurricanes got their guy when Reese Poffenbarger committed. He was the QB at the University of Albany and he led the Great Danes to the semifinals of the FCS Playoffs.
Taulia Tagoviola recently announced that he is entering the transfer portal following this season at Maryland. The problem is, he is doing it while requesting a sixth year of eligibility. If he gets it, On3’s Pete Nakos is reporting that Miami was a school to watch to land him before they landed Poffenbarger.
This was another strange season in South Florida under Mario Cristobal and he needs to bring in a quarterback that is going to step in and make the Hurricanes a team to watch in the ACC in 2024 and it appears that he's hoping Poffenbarger is that signal caller. Virginia Tech will visit Miami next fall.
