Bamisile, a top 100 guard from Richmond, was noted as Mike Young’s top recruit in the 2020 recruiting class. He originally committed to Northwestern, but signed with the Hokies out of Monacan High School in Chesterfield.
Injuries forced Bamsile to miss his sophomore and senior seasons of high school, and as a result he was still a very raw player when he enrolled at Virginia Tech, with older and more experienced players getting most of the playing time in the Hokies’ backcourt. He appeared in 13 games for Tech, averaging 3.5 points per game. His best game came on February 6 at Miami when he scored 11 points in 25 minutes following an early injury to sophomore guard Jalen Cone.
Mike Young now has two available scholarships for the 2021 class, which already features point guard Sean Pedulla.
