James Johnson is 1-0.
Nathan Warters has more the details from Brantley Shields, Wood's coach.
"He met with J.J. [on Wednesday] afternoon, and Marshall came to our workouts and told me that he told J.J. that he was going to Tech," Shields said.
A lot of the talk has been about the two incoming players: Wood and Montrezl Harrell. However, there's no doubt hiring Johnson helped stabilize any uncertainty current players within the program may have had.
"I'm stress free now," Green said. "I was kind of stressed. I didn't want to leave Virginia Tech. I love this place. I love Hokie Nation. I love everything about it. I just wanted to go out right my senior year, and playing for a new guy I had no idea about, what kind of style he was, what he was going to say to me to make me want to stay, I really wasn't comfortable with that.
"I'm just really excited coach Johnson is here, and I really believe we're going to have an exciting season next year."
"We have the same base. We've got the same players. We've got somebody we're familiar with," sophomore forward Jarell Eddie said. "It's not a brand new guy. Hopefully those guys see that, see that we're going to do good things next year and want to be a part of that."
The question now, can Johnson work a little more magic and keep blue-chipper Montrezl Harrell at Tech?
