Hokies Land Point Guard

Seth Greenberg wasted little time in accepting a commitment from his first player at Virginia Tech. Point guard Zabian Dowdell picked the Hokies on Tuesday.

Greenberg Was Already Familiar With Dowdell

Zabian Dowdell and Seth Greenberg go way back. OK, only about a year or so but they're from the same state. Greenberg recruited Dowdell during his tenure at South Florida.

On Wednesday, Dowdell will sign with Virginia Tech. "He had been recruiting me ever since he was at South Florida," Dowdell said. "When he got the job at Virginia Tech, he continued to recruit me."

Dowdell had offers from South Florida, East Carolina and Florida Atlantic.

Dowdell averaged 22 points a game last year. "I'll basically have a good chance at being the starting point guard. I'm looking forward to leading the team. I'll be able to come in and be the leader."
