According to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports, Georgia Perimeter power forward Shane Henry has made a verbal commitment to Virginia Tech.

Henry chose the Hokies over Texas Tech.  The JUCO transfer will be eligible immediately, and he has three years to play two.  His commitment fills a major void at the power forward position, as has been discussed often in TSL Pass articles.

Henry averaged 13.2 points and 12.5 rebounds this past season.  He led the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Associate in rebounds and blocks (4.7 per game, with the second place finisher averaging 2.6 per game).  He was named First Team All-GCAA, and he was also the GCAA Defensive Player of the Year.

With Henry’s commitment, the Hokies have added depth to the power foward position.  Senior C.J. Barksdale is eligible to return, as is walk-on Christian Beyer.  However, remember that there could always be more attrition over the summer, and the Hokies might not necessarily be done with recruiting for this class.

  1. This is obviously a good “get” because he was highly coveted. But I question his being called a power forward–he is only 180 pounds according to the RTD. I hope he can put some muscle mass on that frame…I’m 6’8″ tall, but I weigh 270 pounds. Somewhere about 1/2 way between him now and me would be good. And more of his being in shape would be good, too…at 67 years of age I am NOT in good shape 🙂

  2. Will be exciting to again be watching competitive basketball vs. whether we will be down by 15 at halftime.
    Basketball at Tech not this exciting for me since 1973 NIT team.

  3. Wow, Buzz has completely re-made the roster in 3 months time. He has brought in 3 upper-classman, and 4 true frosh to add depth and skill at every position. I love the fact that he built the team yet the players are reasonably spaced out. This will allow future recruiting to keep improving the talent.

    Will and CC, you really need an updated link under basketball that shows who will be on the team for 2014-15. Or at least who projects to be on the team as of today.

  4. Don’t remember when if ever basketball recruiting made this much news. Maybe I’m just paying a little bit more attention in the down time waiting for football but it seems as there is a lot more activity going on in the basketball area. Either way great hire for VT in Buzz. For the first time ever I am actually excited to see basketball season start.

  5. Having all that depth will get several more wins.Hokies may be better than (4)or (5) other ACC programs

  6. I am super excited about the basketball team and the upcoming season! I have high hopes for this team!

  7. Congrats again to VT sports and specifically the coaches and leadership that made this happen, beginning with the new AD and HC.

    I will definitely be happy with a .500 ACC finish this upcoming year- good luck in the search for an NCAA bid!

  8. I’m pleasantly pleased. Yes I am. I watched most games last year and this year I can watch most all the games again and maybe this time with different outcomes i.e.. winning!!!
