The pursuit of Qudus Wahab is picking up, especially now that Pitt missed out on Kofi Cockburn to Illinois. I think he is going to wait until signing day at this point to allow him as much time as possible to make his selection. He would be a great addition to the Hokies with his ability to handle the basketball both at the top of the post and around the basket. Think Blackshear without hesitation and the ability to dribble in the lane. He also plays clean defensively so Blackshear without the 2 or 3 bad fouls.
Buzz did recently put out an offer to Four Star 2020 Center Jonathan Aku, 6'10, 190 Lbs which makes him the second Center in the 2020 class besides Mark Williams out of Norfolk, VA That of course is barring Buzz pulling off a major recruiting steal with the interest Isaiah Todd is showing in the Hokies. Todd is the #13 player in the class of 2020 and was thought a solid lock to UNC until recently.
Another recent offer was to 2021 Wing Camron McDowell, 6'5, 180 Lbs
Interesting story on Andre Gordon, 2019, 6'2 Combo Guard from Huntington Prep who signed with Buzz in December. Gordon also was being pursued for a football scholarship as a Dual Threat QB, so Buzz is won out against two sets of coaches on this one.
Their has been alot of chatter that Buzz is close to gaining a commitment from Jalen Cone #83 in Class of 2020 as a Point Guard.
Now for the bad news, without a commitment by Wahab, it appears Buzz is out of current options on a big for the 2019 cycle. That doesnt mean he cant find a graduate transfer or JUCO player to try to fill the gap but its always better to get the four years from a player when possible. Power Forward or Center is really the only hole in the class as it stands now. There had been a glimmer of hope on a transfer
