  • Charles Woodson on the red carpet of the NFL honors night at the Wortham Theater Center on Saturday Feb. 4 2017 in Houston

He now resides in Atlanta where he is a partner with SterlingSeacrest Partners, an insurance and risk management company, and also works as a television football game analyst with the SEC Network and ESPN.

The legendary MI defensive back was informed on Sunday during ESPN's "NFL Countdown" that he will be inducted into the 2018 College Football Hall of Fame.

The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame announced the 2018 College Football Hall of Fame class, which includes former Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer, two other coaches and multiple players.

Woodson recorded 18 interceptions during his three-year stint at MI, and was drafted fourth overall by the Oakland Raiders during the 1998 NFL Draft.

The 2018 class officially will be inducted during the 61st NFF Annual Awards Dinner on December 4, 2018, at the New York Hilton Midtown.




Beamer will also be inducted into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame April 7 in Virginia Beach. He was inducted into the team's Ring of Honor on November 22, 2015. Taylor then moved back to his preferred position of left guard during his senior season when he claimed unanimous first team All-America honors and the 1997 Outland Trophy as the most outstanding interior lineman in the nation. Woodson finished his pro career as a nine-time Pro Bowl selection and eight-time all-pro.

Dickenson remains the all-time leading passer for the Grizzlies while holding 28 school records.

Taylor was a key member of the Huskers' dominate run under Tom Osborne that ended with national titles in 1994-95 and 1997.

Taylor was selected in the seventh round of the 1998 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts, splitting the season between the Colts and Chicago Bears.

The man who elevated Virginia Tech's football program into the national spotlight, and led the Hokies to a record 23 consecutive bowl games, has been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
