Virginia Tech CB Facyson to return for senior season

BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) On a day when North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky announced that he would go pro, passing up his senior season, the Hokies football team got some good news Monday with word that cornerback Brandon Facyson will return to school for his senior season.

The new was first reported by Facyson's hometown paper, the Newnan Times Herald in Georgia. The junior has appeared in 42 games in his Tech career, starting 36 of those. Facyson had 48 tackles this past season to go with two forced fumbles.

He was said to be leaning towards leaving early for the draft. He's already graduated with a degree in biology. Facyson bolsters what should already be a stout secondary in 2017.
