Virginia Tech may be sporting a new set of all-gray uniforms for the Hokies’ Week 1 showdown against defending national champion Alabama.

Nothing has been confirmed, but the above photo of Tech defensive end James Gayle wearing the gray-on-gray was leaked on Friday and spotted by Chris Coleman of Sports War. It is only one day until the two programs face off in the Georgia Dome for the Chick-fil-A Kickoff, and you’ll notice the giant “Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game” patch on Gayle’s right shoulder.

If these grays are going to be the uniform of choice for coach Frank Beamer’s Hokies, they are going to be worn by a team that is almost half-filled with freshmen.
