Grant Wells gained separation over Jason Brown in the Virginia Tech spring game but first-year Hokies head coach Brent Pry is not ready to make his decision just yet. Pry said, despite how well Wells performed in the exhibition, the position battle continues throughout the offseason.
“I thought Grant (Wells) played awful well today,” Pry said after Saturday’s spring game. “Did some good things. Obviously Jason (Brown), the offensive line struggled a little bit for the White group. Made it tough on Jason. Grant obviously threw some good balls. We’ll evaluate the film and continue to work through the summer. We’ll take that competition into preseason camp.”
Wells battles to win the starting role at Virginia Tech after three seasons at Marshall. Over the last two years with the Thundering Herd, Wells completed 64.4% of his passes for 5,626 yards, 34 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. At one point in the first half of the Hokies’ spring game, Wells had 167 yards and two touchdowns on 8-of-13 passing.
