In his first full recruiting class as Virginia Tech head coach, Buzz Williams landed a 5-player class that included high school recruits Kerry Blackshear, Chris Clarke and Justin Robinson, as well as junior college prospects Johnny Hamilton and Ty Outlaw. All three high school prospects were rated on the 4-star level by at least one of the national recruiting outlets (Scout, Rivals, 247Sports and ESPN), and 247Sports ranked the class no. 27 in the nation in the class of 2015.

Virginia Tech had one scholarship at its disposal when the Early Signing Period for the class of 2016 began this past Wednesday. The Hokies used the spot on 6’10”, 230-pound power forward Khadim Sy, a consensus 3-star recruit out of national prep power Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, VA). There currently are no more scholarships available for Williams and company to use in the class of 2016; however, we know that the scholarship situation can be very fluid, so don’t be surprised if a spot or two opens up when the Spring Signing Period comes around.

With Sy officially in the fold, we caught up with our resident basketball recruiting expert, Rev. Zeke, for an in-depth look at Virginia Tech’s newest recruit and more on the basketball recruiting front.
