Pierce, a 6-foot-9, 235-pound center, originally signed with Marquette and Buzz Williams in the fall period. Pierce committed to Marquette on November 15th over strong interest from Pittsburgh, Miami and others.
The three-star prospect asked out of his Letter of Intent when Williams left Marquette for Virginia Tech.
Pierce isn't wasting much time re-starting his recruiting process. Pierce is currently taking an official visit to Virginia Tech, per a source.
