Virginia Tech flipped ESPN 300 offensive lineman Doug Nester from Ohio State on Tuesday and made it official on Wednesday. The Hokies were able to pull the No. 72 ranked recruit away from the Buckeyes as Nester had been looking at other programs since Urban Meyer announced his retirement. The West Virginia prospect had been considering Penn State as well as Virginia Tech and is now officially signed with the Hokies.

Sources: Alabama is expected to hire Virginia Tech wide receivers coach Holmon Wiggins for the same position. Wiggins also had been in the mix for a coordinator role at Temple. I'm hearing Virginia Tech could target Jafar Williams, most recently Maryland's running backs coach, as Wiggins' replacement. Wiggins has coached receivers on Justin Fuente's staffs at both Virginia Tech and Memphis.

Here's former Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer on Urban Meyer's retirement. Beamer today is ending the College Football Hall of Fame. "I was surprised when I heard it, but you know, it's a tough business and every day is a challenge. I think he's done a great job. I'm a fan of his, I really think he's a good coach, but he's got to do what's right for his family and for his health. So I wish him nothing but the best."
