Georgia Tech Vs. Virginia Tech: Questions Surround Yellow Jackets Wide Receivers

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets open their 2012 college football season on Monday night in Blacksburg, Va. as they travel north to take on the Virginia Tech Hokies.

Many questions still remain on who will step-up at wide receiver for starting quarterback Tevin Washington after Stephen Hill jumped to the NFL, Tyler Melton graduated and fifth-year senior Chris Jackson currently dealing with an eligibility issue.

There is a definite lack of experience from the current crop of Yellow Jackets pass-catchers, but head coach Paul Johnson feels confident in the guys who will play according to a Macon.com report:

"We're going to be young, but I think the guys are physically talented, and we'll see how they play Monday night," Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson said this week on the ACC coaches' conference call.
