BLACKSBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Virginia Tech athletics announced Monday that its football Pro Day has been postponed indefinitely.

The event, which showcases Hokies prospects to pro scouts, was scheduled for Friday, March 20.

The decision was made after the National Football League informed Virginia Tech that the league is prohibiting teams from all in-person visits with Draft-eligible prospects until further notice.

Several Hokies were hoping to impress scouts, including tight end Dalton Keene and quarterback Ryan Willis.

The postponement follows the ACC’s decision to suspend all athletic activities due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus. That meant the Hokies had to delay the start of spring football practices.

The NFL said Monday it expects to hold the draft on April 23-29 but without public events that were planned in Las Vegas.
