Mook Reynolds dismissed from Virginia Tech

An offseason of disappointment continues for Virginia Tech, which announced starting defensive back Mook Reynolds has been dismissed from the team.

Reynolds, who would’ve been a senior, collected 70 tackles with nine takedowns for loss last season.

Virginia Tech also lost Adonis Alexander to the NFL supplemental draft and prized junior college transfer Jeremy Webb to a season-ending Achilles injury.

So, the news is particularly hard on the Hokies. Reynolds played a unique role on the defense, effectively serving as a hybrid linebacker/safety. He often dropped in coverage but had a regular presence near the line of scrimmage.

Reynolds tallied 164 tackles, including 22.5 for loss, during his three-year career.
