PJ Horne Commits to Virginia Tech Basketball

Signing Day 2017

Virginia Tech men’s basketball added a third member of their Class of 2017 over the weekend with the commitment of PJ Horne.

Horne is 6-foot-6, 230-pound forward from Tifton, GA. Horne is rated as a 2-star prospect by Verbal Commits and his only other scholarship offers are from Murray State and Alcorn State.

Horne will provide depth in the frontcourt for the Hokies. Virginia Tech will lose Zach LeDay and Johnny Hamilton after this season up front, but will get Kerry Blackshear back from injury and Nick Fullard will be eligible. Freshman center Khadim Sy will also be back next season.

The Hokies’ other two Class of 2017 members are both perimeter players. Guards Wabissa Bede and Nickeil Alexander-Walker will both join Virginia Tech next season and will see the floor in their freshmen seasons. Bede is a 4-star prospect and Alexander-Walker is a 5-star prospect, according to ESPN.

  1. I’m good with it but wish we could get a 4-star, 6-foot-11 “aircraft carrier” as Al McGuire used to say. Other than Coleman Collins (who was adequate) we haven’t had a big man that scared opponents since Dale Solomon.

  2. Important to note Rev. Zeke aka Kip T Jam on Twitter likes him a lot and has him higher rated than other scouts. I trust him to know.

    1. Horne is averaging over 20 ppg and 10 rpg, so that’s a double double. Of course that needs to measured against the quality of his competition…anyone know what level league he is in, or how good his AAU team is? At 240 pounds he is a beast, which we need. I sense he is underrated, so if he’s Buzz’s OKG we need to throw blankets over him and hide him.
