Last week, Virginia Tech announced the signing of three players in the 2008 men’s basketball recruiting class. This week, caught up with Talent Evaluator Brick Oettinger for his analysis on Seth Greenberg’s three recruits as well as a look at the rest of the Atlantic Coast Conference fall hauls. Also, be sure to check out TSL guru Rev. Zeke Vodka’s analysis of Tech’s recruiting class.

Virginia Tech’s Fall Recruiting Class

Victor Davila – 6-8, 230-pound PF, Starmount (Hamptonville, N.C.)
Kendall Durant – 6-3, 185-pound G, New Hampton Prep (New Hampton, N.H.)
Gene Swindle – 6-11, 260-pound C, Gulliver Prep (Miami, FL)

Where Virginia Tech’s recruits are ranked on’s Preseason Top 200 list…

BRICK: “This is a beginning of the season rankings. Obviously, we will have revised rankings after the season. Victor Davila we have at 86. He’s pretty good. He will be an immediate contributor at Virginia Tech and I think the other guys will have to work their way in. We don’t have them in the Top 200, but Kendall Durant and Gene Swindle would’ve been in the next 50.”

Victor Davila…

BRICK: “Davila can play. I would consider Davila a 4 or a 5. He plays big and strong inside and that’s how you can play him up at the 5 against certain opponents. But his best position is at the big forward spot and he is a guy that can score. He can defend. He rebounds the ball well. He gets up and down the court. He is a good all-around player. I would say there is nothing he does great and that’s why nobody has him ranked in the Top 40. This is a guy that does everything solidly. He does everything well.”

BRICK: “He can score a number of different ways. He has got a little turnaround jump shot inside. In fact, his jump shot is okay to about 15 feet. If he is at the high post, you have to guard
