Blacksburg, VA - Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas announced Tuesday, after informing the coaching staff, that he will bypass the NFL Draft and return for his senior season. The Lynchburg, Va., native has started the past 27 games for the Hokies, passing for 6,096 yards and 37 touchdowns while running for 1,015 yards and 20 scores.
Thomas, who redshirted in 2009 before sitting behind Tyrod Taylor in 2010 as a redshirt freshmen, has already graduated with a degree in human development. He will enter his redshirt season year third all-time in both career passing yards (901 behind Tyrod Taylor's record of 7,017 yards) and career total offense (2,102 behind Tyrod Taylor's record of 9,213 yards) at Virginia Tech.
"I'm deciding to come back to Tech to better myself and this team for the future. I'm looking forward to what this upcoming season holds. The NFL has always been a goal of mine, but the NFL will always be there while college is only a five-year experience that you can't get back," Thomas said.
