 Rayshard Ashby, Virginia Tech, Player News


  Virginia Tech linebacker Rayshard Ashby declared for the NFL Draft on Thursday. Ashby was a senior, but he could have come back for a fifth year with the NCAA giving all fall student-athletes an additional year of eligibility this season in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The linebacker announced the decision with a lengthy thank-you letter to fans on social media. Ashby was a three-year starter for Tech at middle linebacker. He finished his career with 294 tackles (156 solo) - he led the team in tackling in 2018 and 2019 - with 34 tackles for loss, 10 sacks and five forced fumbles. - Roanoke Times
