Re: Colombi Transferring

Tech is by no means a guaranteed starter spot for Colombi. They've got a kid coming back from injury, Alan Bowman, that was very impressive in 2018 and is being talked about as a blackhorse for some conference honors. Maybe Bowman will transfer now, and the cycle will go on forever.

Re: New QB transfer?

We currently have 3 running backs, a special teams stud, a walk-on that might turn into something, and two guys that somehow got security clearance to be in the running backs room.

We could certainly use a fourth running back.
