Pedulla is a 6-1, 175 point guard who chose the Hokies over Power 5 offers from Oklahoma State and Minnesota. He also had offers from Tulsa, Louisiana Tech, Colorado State, and others. He is ranked as the No. 141 prospect in the country by 247Sports, and the No. 25 point guard. He is also ranked as the No. 2 player in Oklahoma.
Virginia Tech loses guards Wabissa Bede and Cartier Diarra following the 2020-21 season, which means that Pedulla could have an opportunity for playing time from the very beginning of his career. He picked up an offer from the Hokies in July after an impressive summer on the AAU circuit.

A good point guard makes everyone else better. I hope he’s our floor general of the future.
Welcome, Sean. You’re in good hands with Mike Young.
Welcome home! Here’s to you doing to FT what the last great guard from Enid, Mark Price did for the Jackets!
Cool, Rick Astley on the squad.
Well, he’s Never Gonna Give us Up!
That’s gotta be worth Titanium, at least.
We all should be happy that VT have a commitment like this young man.
Did anyone see in the video at the end There was something concerning Pedulla being the next player for TEX. A& M Who the coaches that team ..the SEC’s most popular and best dressed snake in the grass!! The all time biggest jerk in college basketball. That man should never be trusted!!
Please stop the hysterics. We don’t have Mike Young OR this recruit without Buzz building back up a completely failed MBB program.
Fantastic…………………love those Oklahoma people. I was stationed at Altus AFB in 1967.
Wait so he’s 3 inches taller than Jalen Cone already? Haha I don’t believe it!
He does finish well at the rim even with contact but I don’t know if that will work going into the lane against ACC competition. Also he shoots well when open but his release is a bit low, almost like he still “pushes” it which is what you have to do when you’re small and young trying to shoot 3’s.
All that said, I assume if MY offered the young man he sees promise in him. Welcome to Virginia Tech!
I noticed the same about the low release and pushing it. Was wondering if I dared post such a sincere comment, would it offend? Welp, now that some else posted the same . . . it is common to see the same type of shooting, though less so over the years, in other leagues. My BB playing wife has a similar release and I can’t beat her in a game of HORSE ever . . . though my shot looks better.
I agree that I trust MY. Also, this kid looks bigger than 175 or plain ol’ cut in his picture above. That doesn’t just happen without pushing away from the dinner table and hitting the gym. Good sign. He looks quick enough to play some good D and frustrate the other guy.
His release is high enough. Look at his release and compare it to Steph Curry. Very similar. Key is having a quick release and he appears to have that and he has some range which creates problems defensively.
He has tremendous range in film I saw vs high level AAU competition. Like NBA range
His release resembles Curry at the same age. With strength and size will come adjustments. My big question is his defense. I can only assume that he would not have a spot at VT if he couldn’t, especially given Cone’s liabilities in that area.
Looks like he has the ability to drive to the hoop as well as hit the 3-pointer. Welcome Sean.
Welcome home to the Burg, Sean!
