Williams pursues point guards and combo forwards

Buzz Williams has been a busy man since his arrival at Virginia Tech. Dozens of prospects have visited Blacksburg, and dozens of offers have gone out to 2015, 2016 and 2017 recruits.

With so much activity, sometimes it’s hard to keep things straight. I bet I’ve read a dozen names at all five positions who have offers from the Hokies for the 2015 class. However, technically speaking, Tech has just one scholarship available for 2015. Here’s a list of the players who are eligible to be on the 2015-16 roster…

SG Adam Smith (r-Sr.)
C Joey van Zegeren (r-Sr.)
PF Shane Henry (Sr.)
PF Zach LeDay (r-Jr.)
PG Seth Allen (r-Jr.)
PG Devin Wilson (Jr.)
SG/SF Ben Emelogu (Jr.)
PG Malik Mueller (r-So.)
SG/SF Ahmed Hill (So.)
SF Justin Bibbs (So.)
SG/SF Jalen Hudson (SG/SF)
C Satchel Pierce (So.)

That’s 12 guys, and it’s obvious that the Hokies need post help more than anything else on the roster. They are fine at wing, particularly with guys who can play the shooting guard spot.
