Point Guard picks Hokies

Virginia Tech snagged a late 2013 pledge from Pennsylvania native Devin Wilson.

Virginia Tech needs a point guard to help replace the production of departing senior Erick Green, and on Monday evening they added one who could be a help. Mc Kees Rocks (Penn) Montour product Devin Wilson gave his commitment.

At 6-foot-4, Wilson has the size and athleticism to play either guard spot, but being a playmaker with the ball is what he does best. According to Wilson he fills that his game fits perfectly in Blacksburg.

"I really liked the campus and I think the coaches have a good plan and future ahead of them," said Wilson. "I would love to be a part of that so I committed to the school."

Wilson began getting a lot of attention his senior season and ended up visiting George Mason, Virginia Tech, St. Joseph's, and Western Michigan. Also he was offered by West Virginia, but in the end it was the Hokies that won out.

Virginia Tech now has five commitments in the class. Wilson joins centers Trevor Thompson and Maurice Kirby as well as wings Donte Clark and Ben Emelogu.
