I wasn't in Blacksburg today, so we'll get to the people who were in just a second. All reports from the scrimmage indicate that freshman defensive end James Gayle dominated the Hokies' scrimmage Saturday, recording three sacks. Gayle, a sophomore from Hampton, is listed as one of the starting DE's on Tech's spring depth chart, along with J.R. Collins.
Tech is replacing both starting defensive ends from last year's team, so Gayle's development was going to be an important for the defense, which needs QB pressure from the front four. Coming into the spring, the coaches said Gayle was "strong and explosive" and had "gained a better understanding of the position." It looks like he proved them right, at least in the first full scrimmage.
After the jump, we'll recap the scrimmage through the magic of Twitter.
