Looks like the Maryland Trio aren’t the only ones bolting from an ACC school.

Here’s hoping the following transfer, if indeed it comes to fruition, goes a little more smoothly. Technically, redshirt freshman cornerback James Farrow hasn’t received his release from Virginia Tech, but it appears that’s the route things are headed. Farrow tweeted last night that he intends to leave the program for opportunities elsewhere.

My decision to transfer elsewhere has nothing to do with VT football,” Farrow said. “I love the entire Hokie family and wish them all the best next season. reported yesterday that Farrow was transferring, but VT said shortly thereafter that nothing had finalized on that front.

Maybe he’s trying to get some ducks in a row. I don’t know where this is all coming from, to be honest with you,” a VT spokesperson told the Washington Post. has Farrow listed as a three-star athlete from Minnesota when he signed with the Hokies in 2011. He was expected to compete for a backup spot this spring, according to Andy Bitter of The Virginian-Pilot.

    Georgia is looking for a little depth at the CB position. I would bet he stays in the ACC though.

    I’d think he probably would prefer to play closer to home. Its a long walk from Blacksburg to Minn.

    Really?? You are really comparing this transfer to the Terrapin mass exodus? Really?? Randy Edsall and Frank Beamer have very little in common in the way they treat players.
