Tech’s men’s basketball program has been on a bit of a roll as of late, landing quality prospects for the 2007 and 2008 classes, respectively. Coach Seth Greenberg is hoping to keep the momentum going and he appears to have made a good impression on Dorenzo Hudson , a 6-4, 185-pound guard who is rated a 4-star prospect by Scout.com.

“I made an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech last week,” said Hudson, a class of 2007 recruit. He is transferring into Hargrave Military Academy for the upcoming year. “It was just a day visit. I went up and talked to people in the education department and watched some film.”

Hudson’s impression of the Tech coaches and the program is positive.

“I’d say they are doing a great job of recruiting me,” Hudson said, referring to the Tech staff. “They have a nice coaching staff. They really seem to care about the player and the person. I felt real comfortable there. I like the style of play. They like to push it and play pressure defense.”

The Hokies have some company for the standout athlete, as Clemson, Miami and Wake Forest are among the other programs to offer. He plans on making visits to all three schools in the near future.

“I’m going to Clemson this Thursday and Wake Forest on Saturday,” Hudson said. “I’m taking an official visit to Miami on Labor Day weekend. I’m going to take an official visit to Virginia Tech, but I’m not sure on a date.”

Hudson seems to be taking his time in the recruiting process, as he is not sure when he will make a commitment.

“No, sir,” Hudson replied when asked if he had any favorites. He estimates that he has 14 total scholarship offers. “I’m just going to take my visits and see what happens. I’m open right now. I haven’t decided if I will sign in November or if I will wait.”

How will Hudson figure out where he wants to play his future basketball?

“I’m going to look at a lot of film to see where I fit in,” Hudson said. “And when I get there, I want someone who can help take me to the next level.”

Hudson averaged 16 points, eight rebounds and three steals per game last season as a junior. The cousin of VT 2008 commitment J.T. Thompson, he played for Forest Hills High School (Marshville, N.C.) and earned county player of the year honors for his efforts last season.
