According to Hargrave Military Academy Head Coach Kevin Keatts, Virginia Tech has offered scholarships to wing-forward prospects Marc Egerson and Sam Young. Egerson is a 6-5, 200-pound prospect out of Glasgow High School in Newark, Delaware, while Young is a 6-5, 190-pound prospect out of Friendly High School in Fort Washington, Maryland.
“Virginia Tech has definitely offered Sam Young and Marc Egerson,” Keatts said. “Sam Young’s being recruited by Pittsburgh, Georgetown, Virginia Tech, Miami, Georgia and GW. Ohio State and Virginia Tech have offered Egerson.
“Neither one of those guys have committed anywhere. Both of them are open.”
Egerson, who is also being recruited by Virginia, Xavier, Miami (Fl) and George Washington, earned state Player of the Year honors last year. He averaged 19 points per game as a senior last season. He projects as a small forward or wing guard on the next level.
“Egerson is more of a slasher,” Keatts said. “If you look at him he has a body that appears to be a junior in college. Solid, well put-together kid that can play any position. He’s more suited for the 3 but has a chance to be a 2 one day.”
Egerson will be repeating his senior year at Hargrave.
Sam Young, who will also be repeating his senior year, shows the ability to play inside or outside and possesses tremendous athleticism.
“Sam Young is a run-and-jump 3 or 4, very athletic, super athletic can put the ball on the floor and get to the hole,” Keatts said. “He’s a match-up problem b/c if he’s checked by a big guy he can take him outside, and little guys he can take him inside.”
According to Keatts, both players have interest in Tech.
“Both have a lot of interest in Virginia Tech, and I think Seth Greenberg’s done a great job recruiting both those guys,” Keatts said.
It’s uncertain exactly where these 2 prospects are looking specifically in terms of colleges, but Keatts expects them to narrow their lists this Fall and possibly set up a few visits.
“It’s too early to figure out what they want to do,” Keatts said. “Once they get here they obviously will kind of shorten their list and decide which schools they’re really serious about.”
