VT In Hot Pursuit Of Frank Mason

Virginia Tech men’s basketball recently got on the board in class of 2013 recruiting with a commitment from 6’11” center Trevor Thompson.  James Johnson and company are looking to continue the recruiting success, and Massanutten Military Academy (Woodstock, VA) point guard  Frank Mason is high on the list of targets.  The interest is reciprocal, it appears.

“I think he is open, but I also think he is 100-percent a fan of Virginia Tech,” MMA postgraduate head coach Chad Myers said of Mason, who visited Blacksburg just a few weekends ago.  “[This past Sunday], Virginia Tech had three coaches in to see him.  There was James Johnson and two assistants.  I think he liked that.  That obviously shows what they think of Frank.

“He is open, but I’ll say that Virginia Tech has definitely done a great job recruiting him.”

Mason is a 2012 graduate of Petersburg High School (VA).  He is now weeks into a postgraduate year at MMA, and he is doing well on and off the court.
