    Eric Winston OT Miami announced he's returning for his senior year. Did that a month or so ago.

    Gabe Watson said he's returning to school. But that was a few weeks ago, so he could change his mind.

    Blackmon is going back to BC.

    I wouldn't expect Breaston to come out, nor Blackstock.

    All reports i've been seeing incididate Jimmy Williams is coming back to Blacksburg for his senior season. Even after the Sugar Bowl he was quoted saying he wanted to be a leader for the Hokies next season. The only twist is he doesn't want to play corner next year, he'd rather focus on safety again.

    Why would he want to go back to safety when the pay corners a WHOLE lot more?
