Virginia Tech added blue-chip hoops prospect Wabissa Bede to its 2017 recruiting class. Bede opted for the Hokies over offers from Butler, LaSalle, UMass, and Minnesota.
The 6-1, 180 pound Cushing Academy (Massachusetts) point guard is rated as 4-star and top-100 recruit by 247Sports, ESPN, Rivals, and Scout. Bede made an official visit to Virginia Tech last weekend. Buzz Williams and staff have been hot on his tail as of late.
"I love coach [Buzz] Williams," Bede said in an August interview with Scout. "[He] reminds me of [Mass Rivals coach] Vin [Pastore]. He's tough with a soft heart. He believes in me a lot and I can play at that level and produce there. Also they've been recruiting me a lot this summer."
Bede joins highly-touted shooting guard Nickeil Alexander-Walker in Virginia Tech basketball's 2017 recruiting class.
