Virginia Tech basketball announced in a brief email that forward PJ Horne has entered the transfer portal.

A rising senior from Tift County High School in Tifton, Georgia, Horne started 30 of 32 games last year, averaging 7.6 points and 4.2 rebounds per game. For his career at Virginia Tech, he played in 89 games, starting 35, averaging 5.2 ppg and 3.0 rpg in 18 minutes per game. Horne made the ACC Academic Honor Roll in 2018-19.

A Virginia Tech spokesman relayed that Horne has not yet graduated (he has only been at Virginia Tech for three years), so he may have to sit out a year after transferring. He does have a redshirt year available.

  1. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. That lie is as true in college basketball as it is in farming.

    1. The fact is that if he stayed here, he simply wasn’t going to play that much this coming year. This year’s team will have plenty of size in the low post with Ojiako, Pemsl, Aluma and N’Guessian, all of whom are at least 6’8”.

  2. Think this was a CMY move (in order to make more room on the roster)? Just curious.

    Either way, Horne was a loyal Hokie, willing to play against much bigger opponents. Wish him the best where ever he ends up!

  3. Hope he finds a good situation for himself. Banging against much bigger players had to get old

  4. He saved our butts by sticking around last season and remained a good teammate and role model for the new guys. All the best to PJ!

    1. Well, yeah but … he’s a rising senior. At some point you have to look a little further down the road, why not finish out your career at VT? and that means getting your degree along with another year on the team especially considering his being no the academic honor roll (kinda redundant, but I digress) and soak up a little playing time knowing that some time during the season someone gets hurt and a guy with three years under his belt fills in, thank goodness.

      This ain’t a complaint, I want him to stay, I suppose he could look at as two more years of bball w/a redshirt year but again, time to look down the road, this, of course, if this is his own decision.

        1. Well good, That makes a lot more sense then, graduate VT and hopefully use a schollie to do graduate work at another school.

  5. Nothing but best wishes for You and the Family ! Always a pleasure to
    root for a student-athlete like You from the state of (Tifton) Georgia !

  6. Wishing him nothing but good luck. We’ll miss you and thanks for all you have contributed to the bb program at Tech. Hokie fans love ya!!!!

      1. That’s a good, factual statement to put it in perspective. It’s the new landscape, not just at VT, but everywhere. Everybody is likely going to have 1-2 players wanting to leave, and good coaches will find someone in the portal wanting to come here to take their place.

  7. Thank you, PJ, for your unstinting battles against opponents’ bigger players. You were a real team contributor.
