Virginia Tech 2019 men’s basketball signee Yavuz Gultekin has been released from his letter of intent, per his Instagram account.
Gultekin is a 6-7 forward originally from Turkey who played for Bishop Walsh School in Maryland. He is the second 2019 Tech signee to be released from his LOI, joining 4-star guard Anthony Harris. There is still a possibility that both players could end up at Virginia Tech, though at this point Harris seems more likely.
Assuming neither player signs with the Hokies, here is what Virginia Tech’s current 2019-20 roster looks like, including the two players who have entered their names into the transfer portal.
F Kerry Blackshear, r-Sr.
G Wabissa Bede, Jr. (transfer portal)
F PJ Horne, Jr.
G Isaiah Wilkins, So.
G Jonathan Kabongo, So.
G/F Landers Nolley, r-Fr. (transfer portal)
G Andre Gordon, Fr.
F Emanuel Miller, Fr.
Bede and Nolley could return to Virginia Tech, though Bede seems more likely to return than Nolley at this stage.
