Hokies moving Terrell Edmunds to free safety in spring

BLACKSBURG, Va. (WSET) - The Hokies and second-year head coach Justin Fuente kick off spring football practice Tuesday in Blacksburg with his staff looking to fill some holes in the roster.

On the defensive side, Dan River's Terrell Edmunds will move to free safety, replacing the graduating Chuck Clark, while a new quarterback battle will soon begin to replace Jerod Evans, who declared for the NFL draft after last year's ACC Coastal Title and Belk Bowl wins.

Brad Cornelsen, VT Offensive Coordinator, said "When you get closer to the season, when you get to fall camp, you're trying to figure out whoever it is you decide to go with, what can they do, what can they handle. We're trying to get that guy to play well and figure out what kind of weapons we have around him. "

Terrell Edmunds, R-Jr. FS (Dan River), said "They both came and talked to me and just asked would I mind moving to free safety and my first response was I'll do anything to help the team. So just learning how to talk to everyone and learning how to get everyone to follow my footsteps as well as Andrew's footsteps, the middle linebacker. Just trying to keep everyone on the same page."
