Five Virginia Tech Players To Know

Quentin Harris, QB: While he’s no Daniel Jones, the redshirt senior quarter back is dynamic as a passer and runner. He’s thrown for 1,500 yards, 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions in this season on 61 percent clip. He’s also run the ball 104 times for 408 yards and six touchdowns.

Jalon Calhoun, WR: The 5-foot-11 receiver leads the team in receptions (37), yards (294) and touchdowns (3). He should also be a premier option for the Blue Devils on third and long.

Victor Dimukeje, DE: The 6-foot-2, 265-pound Blue Devil is a bit undersized compared to the traditional defensive end, but he makes up for it with his overwhelming strength and speed. He leads the team in sacks with 6.5 and TFLs with 7.5. He’s also forced one fumbled this season.

Koby Quansah, LB: He’s a first year starter but also a seasoned veteran. Quansah is easily the team’s leading tackler with 72 on the year. The next closest has 56. He’s also tied with Dimukeje in TFLs with 7.5.
