A Peek at Virginia Tech's Roster

David Wilson was one of ten Hokies recruited by Michigan.

Here's a brief look at the players on Virginia Tech's roster that Michigan recruited when they were in high school:

Nick Acree - OT - Redshirt freshman
Acree (Fork Union/King William, VA) is a 6'5", 278 lb. position changer from defensive tackle, the position for which Michigan recruited him.  He has yet to see game action.

Detrick Bonner - CB - Redshirt freshman
Bonner (Luelia/McDonough, GA) is a 6', 189 lb. cornerback who has played in 12 games and started 3 of them.  In those 12 contests he has made 26 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, 1 interception, 1 fumble recovery, and 3 pass breakups.

Kris Harley - DT - Freshman
Harley (Warren Central/Indianapolis, IN) is a 6', 287 lb. defensive tackle who is taking a redshirt during his freshman season.

Cris Hill - CB - Fifth year senior
Hill (Highland Springs/Richmond, VA) is a 5'11", 180 lb. cornerback who has made 7 career starts, including 5 this season.  On the season he has 33 tackles, 1 interception, and 6 pass breakups.

Jayron Hosley - CB - Junior
Hosley (Atlantic/Delray Beach, FL) is a 5'10", 171 lb. cornerback.  Much was expected of him after last season when he made 9 interceptions, but he has had a slightly disappointing year in 2011.  This year he has 59 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 3 interceptions, 8 pass breakups, 1 fumble recovery, and 2 forced fumbles.  That's a pretty good year for most corners.  Hosley is also a dangerous punt returner with 2 career punt returns for touchdowns, although this season he has zero, despite averaging 12.0 yards on 17 returns.

Kyshoen Jarrett - CB - Freshman
Jarrett (East Stroudsburg South/Tannersville, PA) was recruited by Michigan as a part of the class of 2011.  He has played in all 13 games this season as a special teamer and backup cornerback, picking up 7 total tackles.  He has also returned 2 punts for 12 yards.

Corey Marshall - DT - Freshman
Marshall (Dinwiddie/Petersburg, VA) is a 6'1", 253 lb. defensive tackle who played in all 13 games and started 1 game against Miami.  He has made 12 tackles and 2 sacks on the season.

Barquell Rivers - LB - Fifth year senior
Rivers (Anson County/Wadesboro, NC) is a 6', 250 lb. inside linebacker with 2 starts on the season.  He has made 16 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, and 1 interception on the year.

Matt Roth - DE - Freshman
Roth (Nease/St. Augustine, FL) is a 6'2", 223 lb. defensive end who is currently redshirting.

David Wilson - RB - Junior
Wilson (George Washington/Danville, VA) was recruited by Michigan as a part of the class of 2009.  After playing a backup role his first two seasons, he has started all 13 games for the Hokies this season.  Wilson has carried the ball 266 times for 1,627 yards and 9 touchdowns.  He has also caught 21 passes for 126 yards and a touchdown.  Wilson is also an effective kick returner, or at least he was last season when he returned 2 kickoffs for touchdowns; this year he is averaging only 18.8 yards on 20 returns.
