The Virginia Tech Hokies are beginning to make their final preparations ahead of their ACC opener against the Boston College Eagles at Lane Stadium on Saturday. Part of those weekly preparations have involved Justin Fuente choosing who would wear Frank Beamer’s #25 jersey with Steven Peoples wearing it week 1 and Sean Huelskamp wearing it in week 2.
Today, Justin Fuente has announced who will be the third player to wear that jersey this year.

Justin Fuente has announced that redshirt freshman DT Tim Settle will be wearing the #25 jersey against the Boston College Eagles. Settle has been spltting time between being a backup defensive tackle and getting some reps on special teams.
So far in 2016, Settle has 3 tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss after a solid performance against Tennessee. Unlike Steven Peoples and Sean Huelskamp, Tim Settle was one of the top recruits in Virginia with ESPN having him as a five-star recruit and top 30 player in the nation.
Congrats to Tim Settle on receiving the honor of wearing the #25 jersey this week against Boston College.
