Brent Benedict Transferring To Virginia Tech Football, According To Reports

Departed Georgia Bulldogs OL Brent Benedict may have found a new home, according to various writers. Benedict is known to have visited the Virginia Tech Hokies over the weekend, and based on Monday's buzz, he may have liked what he saw in Blacksburg.

It's still not entirely clear why Benedict opted to leave the UGA program, though speculation ran from his lingering injury to his disdain for Georgia's new strength and conditioning program. He wasn't recruited by Virginia Tech out of high school, at least according to Rivals, though five other ACC schools tried to sway him.

Taking a year off due to transfer might end up being the best thing for Benedict, who probably wasn't going to be able to provide much playing time in 2011 anyway.
