We’re getting closer to the basketball recruiting November signing period. This afternoon we’ll take a quick look at where the Hokies stand with their 2015 recruiting.

First, let’s see who the Hokies will have returning for the 2015-16 season.

C Joey van Zegeren (r-Sr.)
G Adam Smith (r-Sr.)
F Shane Henry (Sr.)
F Zach Leday (r-Jr.)
G Seth Allen (r-Jr.)
G Devin Wilson (Jr.)
G Malik Mueller (r-So.)
C Satchel Pierce (So.)
G Jalen Hudson (So.)
G Ahmed Hill (So.)
G Justin Bibbs (So.)

That’s 11 players, which means Tech only has room to sign two players for the 2015 class. However, you can bet that there will be attrition. Buzz Williams is very hard on his players. He calls his preseason “boot camp” for a reason. Not everybody can take it, and a lot of guys left during his tenure at Marquette. A lot of guys have already left during his tenure at Virginia Tech. You can bet that a couple of guys on that list will not be back next season.

Buzz Williams is busy trying to sign his first full recruiting class at Virginia Tech. Four names keep popping up more than any others, and if I had to guess, Williams would find room for all of them if they wanted to sign.

Two players are from Virginia, and they play for the same AAU program. Two players are from Florida, and they play for the same high school.
