VT’s Caleb Farley, one of the ACC’s best players, opts out of 2020 season

Due to concerns with COVID-19, Virginia Tech cornerback Caleb Farley has decided to opt out of the 2020 college football season, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. This marks the first high-profile ACC player to opt out of the 2020 season.

Farley could’ve entered the 2020 NFL Draft; however, the product of Maiden, NC elected to return to Blacksburg for his redshirt junior season. Farley was recruited to Virginia Tech as a wide receiver, but during his career he flipped sides of the field, where he emerged as one of the league’s top defenders and a serious NFL prospect.

During the 2019 season, Farley recorded four interceptions (tied for second most in the conference) and was named first team All-ACC. While he’ll miss the 2020 season, Farley can use this time to stay safe — most importantly — and prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft.

Virginia Tech has removed Farley’s bio page for their athletics website.
