While speaking with assembled media members on a Monday Zoom call, Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente heeded caution. Virginia Tech has yet to play a game this season due to COVID-19; NC State had to postpone the opener against the Hokies, which was moved to Sept. 26.
However, with the NC State game less than a week away, Fuente expressed concern over the health of his roster. Fuente said he’s not trying to raise false alarm, but this is now certainly a situation to monitor.
Fuente on this weekend's game vs. NC State: "We will not have a full roster. I hope we're able to play." Notes that the #Hokies still have three more COVID-19 tests this week.
