Wilson The Final Addition To VT’s Class

At roughly eight o’clock Wednesday morning, Montour (McKees Rocks, PA) senior point guard Devin Wilson signed a letter of intent with Virginia Tech.  Wilson and guard  Malik Mueller  have been officially announced by Tech, which signed a total of six prospects in James Johnson’s first full recruiting class as head coach.

The Hokies’ pursuit of the Keystone State standout really began last month, but Wilson is a player at least one member of the Tech staff has been familiar with for much longer.

“Virginia Tech got on him late, probably around the beginning of the state playoffs, because they had a kid transferring and had a need for a guard,” Montour head coach Andy Kaufman said.  “Actually, though, they had known about him a long time.  Kurt Kanaskie had been recruiting him since his sophomore year of high school.  I’ve known Coach Kanaskie for 15 years, so it’s not like they were unaware.  They didn’t have a need until a transfer recently.”

Wilson averaged 17 points, 6.8 rebounds, 6.7 assists, and 4.2 steals per game this past season, helping Montour to a 26-5 overall record.  He stands 6’4″ and weighs 185 pounds, which is a solid frame for a two or even a three on the college level.  Virginia Tech, though, sees him as a “true point guard,” Wilson said.
