Virginia Tech DE Justin Beadles made some surprising news this evening as he announced that he has entered the transfer portal.
Beadles appeared in four games in his first season in Blacksburg in 2020, but did not record any official stats. He will have his full eligibility remaining at his next destination wherever that may be due to the NCAA's free year rule for the 2020 season.
Beadles was considered a top DE prospect for the future for the Hokies who had the size and athletic traits to rise from far down the depth chart to being a starter within a few years. He was behind Robert Wooten among fellow freshman defensive linemen and maybe Alec Bryant as well which may have partially prompted his decision.
We will have more as this story develops.
