What else is new? Now they need that speed to make a run in the playoffs. They were tripped up in the second round of the postseason last year. Eleven of the 22 starters return for a team that needs its offensive and defensive lines to come together quickly. Players say they want to become a closer, tight-knit group with the idea that that will pay off in the playoffs. Tremaine Edmunds has verbally committed to play linebacker at Virginia Tech alongside his two older brothers Trey and Terrell. Before he arrives in Blacksburg he'll be a senior leader along with Curtis Stephens.
