The 2011 men’s basketball recruiting class will arguably be the most
important class of the Seth Greenberg era. The Hokies will depart five seniors
following next season, and they need to be replaced with quality prospects. Tech
is in on some outstanding prospects for this class, but closing the deal with
them remains the most important part or the process.

As of now, Seth Greenberg and his coaching staff are planning on signing five
prospects for the 2011 class. Two of the five have already made verbal
commitments: wing guard Robert Brown, and Danville, VA power forward C.J.
Barksdale.

The Hokies would like to sign one player at each position. That means they’ll
attempt to get another wing player, another post prospect, and a point guard.
Since the ACC is a guard oriented conference, it’s especially important that
Tech get quality recruits at point guard and the wing.

Judging from the list of point guards and wings the Hokies are recruiting, it
looks like they’ll be able to get a quality player at each position.

This is not necessarily a complete list of Virginia Tech recruiting targets,
and the status of scholarship offers might not be 100% accurate either. However,
it does contain all the names of Tech’s top recruiting targets to the extent of
our knowledge. New names could pop up at any point, particularly with post
players, but this is the most accurate list we can come up with at this time.

First, let’s go over Tech’s point guard targets.
