The Hokies land yet another name out of the Transfer Portal, this time with South Carolina Transfer Kicker Will Ross. News of the addition of Will Ross came through the form of a tweet on Wednesday afternoon.

The transfer kicker spent a year as a part of the South Carolina team as a walk-on kicker, before placing his name into the Transfer Portal. The main reasoning behind his decision to transfer being the head coaching change of Will Muschamp to Shane Beamer.

However, before his time with the Gamecocks, Ross had committed to play football for Coastal Carolina University. He spent a season with the Coastal Carolina Football Team, before deciding to leave for South Carolina as a walk-on.

Ross has recorded no in-game stats for either Coastal Carolina or South Carolina, but hopes to change that is his decision to transfer to Virginia Tech. He credits the recruiting from Coach Burnham and Coach Shibest for getting him to Virginia Tech.

Ross will have to compete with other kickers on the team such as Kyle Lowe and Zach Hoban in the spring, after the departure of John Parker Romo and Brian Johnson. The Hokies will have a very talented special teams unit heading into next season with all three gearing for a position battle.

The South Carolina native will have four years of eligibility left with the Hokies as he makes a push for the starting spot. He will become the fifth transfer this offseason adding to a list containing Texas A&M QB Connor Blumrick, Clemson DT Jordan Williams, Vanderbilt DB Tae Daley, and Maryland OL Johnny Jordan.

What’s going on Hokie Nation! My name is Evan Norris and I am currently a junior studying HNFE here at Virginia Tech. I’ve grown up a Hokie my whole life, with family members being huge Hokie fans.

Growing up I’ve witnessed Virginia Tech Recruiting first-hand through family friends being recruited and through players at the University. Also growing up in some of the best recruiting areas the state has to offer, in the Hampton Roads Area and Richmond Area, I have seen great high school football growing up. This has led me to strive for a future career in college football recruiting. I run @RecruitVT on Twitter/Instagram to keep up engagement with prospective recruits and fans alike.
