I want to say thanks to my MOM and DAD, they have always believed in me through my life journey. I also want to say thanks to the person who had faith in me first, Coach Onur. Since the first day I got here, I have had a new family and friends with him. They mean more than just friends to me, Aslihan, Ali, Demhat, Ramazan, Omer and Emre, those guys took care of me like I am their little brother. Ben Bellucci, is the best trainer you can ever work with. His assistants Joe and Matt, his wife Pavla are amazing people. I also want to thank coach Dan Prete and BW Spartans family, coach John Zito and coach Ryan Eskow for giving me this amazing opportunity. And my AAU team MAS is the best team ever. Thanks to coach James Lee and coach Effrem Jones. I am so blessed that I have all those people around me!! All of them are now part of my family and right now I will join another family. Thank you to all of the colleges and coaches who recruited me so far. I am happy to announce that I am going to VIRGINIA TECH UNIVERSITY #letsgohookies 🦃🧡
A stretch forward with a versatile game, the youngster seems to fit into to the team that Buzz is building.
The Hokies recently gained a commitment from Andre Gordon, a 6'3" combo guard who has a versatile set of skills:

Those two followed the lead of Anthony Harris, another 6'3 guard (and borderline top-50 prospect) who committed earlier in October. It's been a busy month for Buzz and his coaching staff, which is comforting to see after a little bit of turnover on the bench (both Jeff Reynolds and Steve Roccaforte took other assistant positions).
I doubt they're done, too. With four seniors (Ty Outlaw, Ahmed Hill, Chris Clarke, and Justin Robinson) on the roster, and the likely chance that Nickeil Alexander-Walker flirts with the NBA, Tech has the room for one or two more guys who fit the mold.
