Wow, he's grown 11" taller since that Hudl update in 2019!

Grabbed the wrong Isaiah Miranda Hudl, updated with another of his profiles

He should look into getting contacts, at least once in those clips his glasses get knocked off

*rec specs

A 7 footer with those would be an instant fan favorite

Class of '23 and 7'1"??? He might be 7'17" by the time he graduates!

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Big, if true

Click here to destroy wall.

Interesting that he playing Power Forward not Center. How tall must the Pawtucket center be??

Ah yes the classic Shrink 4 position?

Well you see, there once was a Center from Pawtucket...

I am not sure what to do with my hands now

Who scored lots of buckets...

That's what she said

Win Miller
Shooting Guard, 6'3, 170 lbs, C/O 2023
Birmingham, Alabama

Bryson Warren
Combo Guard, 6'2, 165lbs, C/O 2023
Little Rock, Arkansas

LOL, are we allowed to offer people under 6'6" on a MY team?

I want Will Shavers. Top 100 center next year 6'9 245 so he can spend a year practicing with alumaπŸ˜‚

Lynn Greer III, a point guard prospect out of Philly committed to Dayton despite a mix of CBs to us and Temple. Just further proof that I shouldn't comment on basketball on this site - cause everyone I do talk about ends up elsewhere.

Hal's grandson?

His dad, Lynn Greer, played at Temple.

2021 class?

So if Bede doesn't return does that leave us with only Cattoor and incoming freshman Pedulla to play PG? I suppose Diarra is an option if he returns. Might have to hit the portal for a PG.

It would, but I'm under the impression that Bede will be staying. No sources, but from the general tone of our targets and what I see from insiders I don't think we're looking for a Bede replacement next year.

Waiting to hear on Pemsl.

And the big one is Aluma.

Barring a monster end by Aluma I think he will be back. I haven't seen a ton of draft buzz around him.

Right, but his age starts working against him quickly.

Not sure how/if he can improve nba prospects. I would assume more consistency in the 3-ball would help but that still may never get him past G-league or Europe.

But the longer he stays, the more the equation of
Minimal improvement and injury risk works against him.

If he doesn't have a realistic chance at making it on an NBA roster, and he wants to play professionally, he's better off going to Europe, and getting his money while he can, if he has a market there.

He is not an NBA prospect

I'm thinking that @Uncle_Drew Twitter handle, alone, qualifies for a 4 star ranking. Let's get Uncle Drew to B-burg.

Hokies make final 6 for North Carolina 4-star PF De'Ante Green (6'9", 205). Articles speculate he will stay in state. One CB for the Heels yesterday. Could reclassify to 2021.

Hokies in contention with UNC, NC State, Wake, FSU, and Tennessee.

It's going to be interesting how ACC recruiting evolves this cycle - the traditional powers (Duke, UNC) are down ticking, how much (if at all) will that affect recruiting and what does the trickle-down effect mean for VT?

He going to UNCπŸ˜”

Yep, also I don't believe he's actually 6'9" either.

I say if we take a PF this year it's gonna be Will Shavers

A quick update on 3-star 2022 C target Riley Mulvey (6' 11", 230). Iowa has been on him pretty heavy and has a CB for him after he recently updated his recruitment:

"Right now, I'd say the list for me I feel like Iowa is the top, then Syracuse, then Virginia Tech, then Yale," Mulvey said. "I feel like those are the main four that I'm thinking about."

Article makes it sound like VT has some work to do if they want Mulvey's pledge.

"I hear from (assistant coach) Kevin Giltner," Mulvey said. "I talked with coach Young one time, but other than that haven't really heard from him since. I hear from Kevin Giltner I'd say I get a text from once a week and I talk to him once every two or three weeks. We end up talking about a couple of his dogs and my dogs. I feel like all of the relationships I have with the coaches is more like friends relationships, which is kind of funny that it works out that way."

Virginia Tech is making an impression on 2023 Columbia, SC 4-star PF prospect GG Jackson whom the Hokies offered last August. Tech currently has competition from Pitt, Cuse, and Wake in addition to home state programs USC and Clemson (he mentions former Hokies target and Clemson freshman PJ Hall as well as his dad almost playing football for Clemson). There's chatter that UNC is sniffing around Jackson, whose dad also happens to be a Heels fan.

"I would say South Carolina, Clemson, Virginia Tech are contacting us the most right now."
...
Virginia Tech: "They run a lot of good offense there. They try to get their big guys open looks and all. And they take care of their athletes, they showed me they are like number one in nutrition. You know, and they have their own private airplanes they travel on and all that."

You can find a good breakdown from last year of Jackson's skill set here.
