David Wilson's Change of Heart Has Paid Off Big For Virginia Tech

Until he actually stood in Michael Vick Hall outside Virginia Tech's football meeting rooms, David Wilson was convinced he was going to be the next Bo Jackson. He can't put his finger on what changed, but Wilson's feelings about Tech and his future at the school became clear in that hallway in the summer of 2008. Now, as he prepares to lead No. 9 Tech into next Saturday's annual rivalry game at Virginia, it's hard for him to imagine a time when he ever thought about spending his college days elsewhere. "I don't know what it was, but I just felt my heart flip right there," Wilson said. "It was a gut feeling. Nobody really said anything to me to get me to change, but I knew it's where I wanted to be."
