JUCO RB Marco Lee Commits to Virginia Tech

After signing 4 junior college players last year, Virginia Tech looks poised to sign more JUCO players this year after gaining a commitment from RB Marco Lee.

Lee becomes the first JUCO commit and fourth RB committed to the Hokies though it would be surprising if Virginia Tech signed 4 running backs this cycle.

Marco Lee has been one of the best JUCO RBs this fall with 820 rushing yards and 5 rushing touchdowns while averaging 5.2 yards per carry.

With Jalen Holston injured, the Hokies have lacked a power running back with Dalton Keene being pushed into that role lately. Lee would give the Hokies a bigger, power back that could play early in short-yardage situations.
