Virginia Tech men’s basketball picked up a graduate transfer commitment from 6-8 center Branden Johnson of Alabama State.

Johnson averaged 4.3 points and 3.7 rebounds in 2018-19. In 2017-18, he averaged 7.7 points and 6.8 rebounds.  He shoots 63.3% from the field for his career, though he’s just a 37.6% free throw shooter, and he’s never made a three-pointer.  He is 6-8, though he only weighs 205.

Johnson will be eligible right away, and he’ll have one year of eligibility remaining.  With his commitment, the Virginia Tech roster now looks like this…

C Kerry Blackshear, r-Sr. (Transfer portal)
C Branden Johnson, r-Sr.
G Wabissa Bede, Jr. (recently removed his name from the transfer portal)
F PJ Horne, Jr.
F Keve Aluma, Jr. (Wofford transfer, must sit out in 2019-20)
G Isaiah Wilkins, So. 
G Jonathan Kabongo, So.
F/G Landers Nolley, r-Fr.
G Hunter Cattoor, Fr.
G Jalen Cone, Fr.

Mike Young will continue to battle to bring in more players for this season, though it remains to be seen who he will be able to land with limited official visits at his disposal.

  1. 6’8” & 205, get him in the dinning hall stat. Given how tall & thin he is I’d say every pound he can gain will make him a better player. The plus is we’re gonna get his best year of college because he’s still filling out. Welcome to VT!

  2. Is this our 2019 version of keith Colbert (yea early 80s hokie). Keep rebounding feed Dell. Whoops where is Dell. Or who is our Dell curry on this team?

  3. Let’s hope he doesn’t get fouled on his layups and dunks. 37.5 percent foul shooting is abysmal

    1. maybe he is here just to absorb the fouls…i don’t see much hope in the acc for this kid when he could only manage those stats at a low major.
