Dominique Patterson Leaving Virginia Tech Football, Kory Gough Redshirting

The most widespread question facing the Virginia Tech Hokies this year: who's going to replace David Wilson at running back? It might not be a one-man job this time around. Well, we know one of those contributors won't be Dominique Patterson, who's leaving Blacksburg.

Patterson practiced as a linebacker in 2010 before sliding over to the offense last year. An ankle injury helped prevent him from suiting up for any action. A rising redshirt sophomore, he was once ranked the No. 40 outside linebacker recruit in the country by Rivals.

At 6'2 and 236 pounds with all sorts of impressive workout numbers, he could still be an outstanding player for another program.
