Logan Thomas to return for senior season

Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas said on Tuesday that he will return for his senior season instead of leaving early for the NFL draft.

This is great news for the Hokies, as Thomas has started the past 27 games, passing for 6,096 yards and 37 touchdowns while running for 1,015 yards and 20 scores.

Thomas graduated in December with a degree in human development. He will enter his redshirt season third all-time in both career passing yards (901 behind Tyrod Taylor’s record of 7,017 yards) and career total offense (2,102 behind Taylor’s record of 9,213 yards) at Virginia Tech.

“I’m deciding to come back to Tech to better myself and this team for the future," Thomas said in a prepared statement. "I’m looking forward to what this upcoming season holds. The NFL has always been a goal of mine, but the NFL will always be there while college is only a five-year experience that you can’t get back.”

We'll have more thoughts on this in a bit. Stay tuned.
