Nolley visited Blacksburg for Virginia Tech football's tilt against Clemson, and Buzz Williams and co. went in-home on September 9.
"Coach Buzz (Williams) and the whole staff came to my house and just basically told me flat out that they would love to have me," Nolley told D1Vision. "They feel like they can push me not just on the court, but off the court as well. The want to help me reach my dream of making the NBA."
Buzzketball has been in hot pursuit and ramped up their efforts over the long-day months. Nolley noted to Rivals both Christian Webster and Williams attended all of his games over this summer as well as called each day.
Nolley eliminated suitors bracket style throughout his recruitment. He originally opted for the Bulldogs over the Hokies on October 7. However, he backed off that pledge a day later.
The native Chicagoan, averaged 24.7 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 2.5 assists for Langston Hughes in 2016-17.
