TAH NEWS FLASH: ORE BACK IN THE HOKIE WATER

Virginia Tech tailback Branden Ore has withdrawn his name from consideration for the NFL draft and will return for his senior season, according to a press release yesterday from Tech's athletic department.

"I am determined to make my family and my teammates, along with the university and its fans, proud," Ore said, according to the release. "I plan on helping Virginia Tech to another successful season."

On Tuesday, Ore filed paperwork to declare for the April draft, and had until the end of Friday to withdraw his name as long as he didn't hire an agent.
