It has not been a great offseason for the secondary at Virginia Tech.
First, the team lost senior cornerback Adonis Alexander after he was declared academically ineligible. He's expected to gain some interest in the supplemental draft, but that doesn't help out the Hokies, especially after this latest announcement.
Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente announced cornerback Mook Reynolds has been dismissed from the team.
If you're reading this, you might be asked to play safety for the Hokies next season. Depending on your eligibility, of course.
Virginia Tech may not be that thin at DB, but Reynolds being booted off the team is rough. The team already was going to be without a starter from last year after Terrell Edmunds was selected in the first round by the Steelers. Without Reynolds and Alexander, there will be more inexperience in the secondary.

Virginia Tech did not explain why Reynolds was dismissed from the team, but it did provide an answer as to why he was missing from spring activities this year.
Over the last three years, Reynolds appeared in 34 games with 165 total tackles, 22.5 of those for a loss, adding 3.5 sacks, two picks, two forced fumbles, and eight passes defended.
The season is quickly approaching, but there's still time for Virginia Tech to lose another defensive back. Let's hope their bad luck streak finally ends.
